Rockfax Description
12m. The arete is followed throughout and is steep quite precarious. A semi-crucial finger jam is easily blocked by a (bomber) runner. © Rockfax

Barn doomed off first move. Started again from the bottom, found a crucial crimp round the corner, straightforward from there. Fun in the sun.

Better and more bold than Tighes arete.

Boulder problem move to get started on R side of arete (5b?), then needs some commitment. Probably can get #1 cam in slot to R, but it's quite strenuous to hang round to place it.

Headtorch ascent! Definitely deserves E1 in my book - gear is pretty crap with solid 5a moves.

Very awkward start. Nice climb afterwards with a tricky move approx 3/4's of the way up.
