Rockfax Description
Exposed and committing climbing up the wall's right-hand arete. Start just to the left of the arete. Make a tricky series of moves over the low overhang and then climb rightwards up the wall to meet the upper arete. Make committing moves up the arete to an easier finish.

βeta: A great route and not too hard to on-sight. The start is entertaining and quite powerful, the the next half is fairly easy (3 good rests) and the arete is sheer quality. Loved it.

βeta: A stick clip is nice for the first bolt. I broke a big jug off the lower arete and then pathetically wimped out of the crux.
