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

βeta: There might be more runners than appearances suggest but I wouldn't like to take a fall on any of the first three that are shown in the picture. A bit bold for the grade. The crux can also be done with a wrist jam!

βeta: A bit bold at first, but the crux is well protected and seems to require either thin fingers or a long reach

samt 22 May Lead Better than it looks at first I thought. Gear lower down is a bit un-inspiring, but if you take your time, you can get something substantial enough. At least the holds are big! Good moves higher up are well protected.
