Rockfax Description
The photogenic arete. Climb steep ground on pockets to an easing midway up the arete. Move up and step left to finish up the crack pulling back right to the lower-off. Climbing directly up the right-hand side of the arete is a thin and fingery 6b+ variation finish. © Rockfax

Came back to get the tick after failed attempts last year. Found the crux really easy but nearly had a major accident clipping from an insecure pocket at the third bolt. I should have found a better clipping position but this route is VERY badly bolted: the placement of the third bolt is so high that if you were to fall at it whilst trying to clip, you would certainly hit the ground - the first two bolts are essentially made redundant by the run out. Indeed there would still be ground fall potential if falling at the fourth bolt on a stretchy rope with a light belayer. BE VERY CAREFUL.

I used the left side of the arete, so 6a. This was my first climb at grade higher than 5+ on an English sport route.

Amazing route, strenuous move at half-way point well above the second bolt is not for the nervous. Not sure I could have led this. Took the easy option going left around the arete at the top where a huge flake makes finishing easy.
