Rockfax Description
A decent, but disjointed pitch. From the grotty groove head left up the fingery wall to ledges. Finish direct up the right-hand side of the arete above. The crack gives an easier finish. © Rockfax

βeta: Suprisingly Gary Gibson did the first ascent and his route identifies how you do the route. It therefore seems odd that his own identity of the route is questioned. You climb the front face. Gary Gibson

Chris the Tall 19 Sep, 2007 Show βeta
βeta: Bottom section is good and merit 6a+ Middle is a bit scrappy and the top is odd. Using the cracks to the left of the arete seems to be cheating, but taking the front face direct and then reaching across to the arete is at least 6b. The position of the bolts doesn't help - if they were better placed it would be an excellant finish.

βeta: I found the route a bit wandering and confusing and the top was harder than 6a+ (and I'd been climbing 6a+ and 6b all day).
