Rockfax Description
The much-fancied, striking arete is short, but immaculate. Most finish on the left at the top of the arete, but the right-hand side also goes, although it is a bit tougher. The direct start is 7a. © Rockfax

Direct start is fine, tried left and right, straight up the arete is probably best, top went a couple of times on the right but it's pretty thin on feet. Left to the sloping ledge is better. Feels like I'm not doing something right as it gets 2-3 stars and I thought it was disjointed and awkward to clip, certainly didn't flow.

I think they call it a retroflash. Did the direct start - still not sure why it isn't just the start as it makes for a far better line..

David Dickinson 12/Nov/17 Lead RP

satisfying once you've got the sequence, we stayed mostly left of the arete which felt more natural, probably also possible if you stay right

Mega sequencey but steady once moves figured out. The crux was definitely working out how to clip the fourth bolt...

2nd clip required some thought to get a sequence. Lead clean and onsight to 4th bolt. *Have* to come back and do this clean: the sequency climbing is absolutely brilliant.

Absolutely brilliant. Almost onsighted it but fell on top crux. Did the direct start second time round, a must do and definitly worth 7a. fantastic route.

Stayed on the right at the top, as leftwards seemed like a cop-out. My foot slipped on the final move, blowing the onsight. Very frustrating, but a great route.

Great route. Took ages to stop falling off the last moves. Have always found it easier on the right funnily enough. If the rest in the middle wasn't so massive it'd warrant 7a.
