Rockfax Description
A popular climb starting just left of a well hole. Although the runout between the second and third bolt appears to be significant there are jugs all around. © Rockfax

Finished the day with the OS of this. The start is the tricky part with some trusting feet but once you get onto the flakes it's a jug frenzy, the right side of the ledge provides a bomber jug also for the mantle. Found this one easy.

Did the direct version using only the right side of the arete and only stepping right onto the big ledge once level with it. A hard undercling at the top. 6a+?

Route following line with flake is not possible with very few handholds and loose rock. At the end its best to go right and stand of ledge directly below final clip.

Worrying run out between bolts 2 and 3, if you fell while clipping bolt 3 you'd be close to grounding out.

The Ivanator 15/Aug/10 Lead

Led with some pre-placed gear. Run out between bolts 2 and 3 is thought provoking and the moves are not as easy as the guidebook comment "there are jugs all around" would have you believe.
