Rockfax Description
The arete right of the corner is a brief, but excellent little climb. Move up the right-hand side of the arete - technical - to a small overhang, pull through this and climb a short wall to finish. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Central arete in the bower. Good balancey climbing up the central arete.

Backed off the first sequence once, sent second attempt. Delicate and a bit spooky before 2nd bolt, after that juggy. Funky variations possible on the features.
