Rockfax Description
Mild but scary! Climb the slabby wall rightwards to an indifferent set of small runners on the arete, then teeter left away from these along the shelf to join and finish up Pulpit Groove. © Rockfax

βeta: The traverse is probably easier if you're short. The gear is a bit suspect but only if you fall off.

βeta: Soft at this grade. The ramp would be 4b if it was two feet off the ground.

joe.91 1 Mar, 2011 Lead O/S First E3! It was E2 in my guide and looked easier then Suspense hence this instead of Suspense. A little scared getting on the ledge and then traversing but apart from that fine. Bomber micro-cams on the arete, had to abb for gear
