Rockfax Description
An impressive arete pitch. Fortunately there are more holds and runners than appearances suggest, though it is still bold! Small wires and a big reach both help. © Rockfax

straightforward if balancey climbing with dubious microwires to almost two thirds height/crux where you can get decent gear. maybe e1?

All straight forward enough once you get over the head games and commit, great finish.

Gear worthless to cam at 20ft. Given you start above 20ft drop this has chop potential. That said nice balance climbing e1 5a

A little bold, but only where the climbing is easy. The tough bit was well protected and perhaps easier for tallies.

First decent pro is pretty high up.

Take the micro-kit! Better than it looks and quite absorbing.

needed some more tiny wires, but braved it, good crux in top crack, an absorbing climb
