Rockfax Description
A technical arete with hard moves past the 1st bolt. Old-skool bolting, so it's a bit bold too. © Rockfax

Climbed on the left or right and what's with the runout? Marred by weird bolting and the ankle threatening hard top wall.

Also did 6C (shell super?) on the wall to the right of the arĂȘte.

Clip stick very useful, top wall hard

More strange bolting. 1st bolt is high up, so take care getting to this although the moves are easy. Then a potential deck out clipping the 2nd bolt, which is clipped blind around the arete. No sign of any bolts above. Scary. I missed out this section and climbed the groove to the right. Then still tricky layback moves on loose rock with a couple of bolts on the top wall. I thought it highly possible that a fall here would mean hitting the (massive) ledge from ankle breaking height. Worth the risk for a chossy f6b+? I thought not and lowered off. This isn't sport climbing, and should be graded as such. Or at least a note in the guide book to tell if the percieved injury potential is real or not. I was quite angry at the time.
