Rockfax Description
One of the major routes of the 1980s up the soaring angular arete. A hard starting section enables the sanctuary of the bore holes to be reached (gear). Continue with rising anxiety to a final wild leap which is roughly twice as far off the ground as your last runner. There is a fixed belay on a bunch of pegs at the top. Climbed on the left-hand side is Re-mastered Edge, E7 6c. © Rockfax

FA. Ron Fawcett late December 1983

nathanlee 7 Mar, 2016 Lead β Had all the info under the sun from watching Nic and Sam last week. Nearly messed it up a few times but just about managed to hold it together... Ended up totally free styling the top move and nearly fell off the jug! Saved it for years, had no expectations, chuffed.

Seb Grieve 18 Feb, 1990 Lead RP Safe E7. Took me months to source the gear (An Amigo and Tricam 2.5) When I got my hands on it the next dry day was super windy day so had to climb between the gusts. The wind was so strong that it made a strange slapping sound as it hit the faces. Slipped off going for the shot-holes but landing is fine (no mats in those days). Next go I got the gear in and then it went down the next go. I just kept doing one more moved thinking I was coming off but weirdly found myself jumping for the jug. It was sooo windy that I thought I was going to be blown off the finishing moves (Certain deck-out) so took me 10 mins to finish the route.
