Rockfax Description
Climb the arete under the right edge of the nose then fidget left, stretch for the flake and go! It does take gear though is often done above pads at f6B+. There is a right-hand start at f6C. © Rockfax

βeta: Thank godness for that! I was starting to think that I'd got even more crap at climbing. I thought E2 (hard 6a/6b) was closer to the mark. Superb little micro-gem.

Graeme Hammond 28 Nov, 2017 Lead Fantastic!!! Took a while to work out the start (above pads) then suddenly went easily (to the break) so came down and put a rope on for the top for the full accent. Rope strictly not necessary as top is much easier but it made for a less stressful and more enjoyable experience. Wanted to do this for ages, such a great looking buttress!
