Rockfax Description
The continuous crack just left of the arete is tricky to enter (jig to the left) and is good above. Large gear helps but isn't essential. © Rockfax

Very green, but dry. Nice thrutchy wide crack with assorted gear options which eases (disappointingly quickly) to an easy finish

A hard to work out crux, I used the crack and arete in a sort of layback in the end. Big gear not essential, a sneaky .5 friend and medium nut in the crack in the crack, (so to speak} makes the crux safe.
