Rockfax Description
The thin crack just left of the arete is steep as far as a good ledge. Continue on the left until forced right to finish. Nice. © Rockfax

Cracking Route! Definitely deserves 2 stars. Quite technical/delicate but well protected where it matters. Interesting moves pulling onto the face from a couple of side pulls/crimps. and then an exciting move to get your right foot into the second notch.

Felt easy for VS, plenty of gear on good holds.

Thoroughly enjoyed this leading this having to take account of my dodgy knee. Made me think more than ever before about footwork. Easy 5a, but not HVS cos the gear's all there. A beautiful climb up an arete that is perfect all the way.

Went to rest on gear while working out the start of the crack, gear popped and took a small fall - that'll teach me. Easy once I found a crimp to the left.
