Rockfax Description
Better that it looks and with tricky moves at the nose - harder for the short who will struggle to reach past the crux. Only HS but harder than Apple Arete - which is a bit odd! © Rockfax

SuperLee1985 15 May, 2016 Lead O/S Nice route, much more so than it looks. Also quite strenuous. Start was interesting in it's self, then some committing lay-backing off the nose gives an awkward rest. And the one final awkward move to get to the start of the top crack. On the spicy end of HS.
