Rockfax Description
The tall arete is photogenic and very good, if rather unbalanced. The last few moves make up the reach-dependent crux. © Rockfax

Crux at penultimate bolt. Move seemed very hard for 7a+. Moving to a small side pull with limited feet or trying to crimp it on top. Possibly a hold missing to the right?

Unbalanced with the hard crux, worthwhile climbing nonetheless

Good route. Take 2 long sling extenders for the bolts either side of the chert band at one third height to save your rope.

I think a hold has broken on the crux. Unless you have to dyno for the sidepull! We thought it more like a 7c crux!
