Rockfax Description
The magnificent and unmistakable central arete of the quarry still sees few ascents. The boulder problem start on the left (f7A+) needs a lot of padding to be made safe. The upper section is a bit easier and needs small gear. © Rockfax

Always hoped I'd have a go at onsight/ground uping this. However the state it was in made it impossible. It's now as clean as it's likely to get. Good job didn't try onsight, hard start! Awesome though. Go try it while it's clean (ish)

Stunning route, shame it's getting a tad dirty. Good boulder problem, into easy climbing, then one annoyingly hard move high up past the peg.

Led after top rope practise, cracking route. There is good gear after the lower crux, which protects the upper arete. Ace!
