Rockfax Description
The short northeast arete yields to a tough mantelshelf. An impressive route for its day and a viable way down for Valkyrie soloists who are technically proficient or have rubber legs. © Rockfax

Soloed to retrieve rope that wouldn't pull after abseiling down Valkyrie to retrieve gear. Single move route, really.
