A nice arete. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climbs the clean arête to the left of the groove further along from the ‘Narcolepsy’ slab (on the Down Under`pans level). Good quality slate and some great moves make this arête worth seeking out. 5 resin bolts lead the way to a double resin lower off.

jrobinson 7 Sep Lead RP Great route with some technical delicate moves, and sometimes powerful dynamic funky moves for slate. One more of the best routes on the salt pans.

Pete_Frost 17 Aug Lead dog Baffling. I think I understand the moves now, but will have to come back to finish this properly. There's a chance of the rope sliding across the sharp arete in a fall so it might be worth using double ropes.
