Rockfax Description
Intricate and well-positioned climbing. Move up to a high bolt and make a powerful pull to better holds. Traverse rightwards to the arete and climb it and the wall to a lower-off. The lower section can be climbed direct at 7a+. © Rockfax

Beautiful route. Slightly thrutchy low crux. Good crimping up the rib.
