The well-defined arete is tricky to get going on but eases after half-height. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The arete to the left. Unfortunately someone clumsy has knocked a hold off so it is no longer F7a+. Low F7a.

Awesome route. Lovely arete boulder problems up to half height and then a waltz to the top. One of my favourite 7a's.

Pulled a bit of rock off between the first and second bolts. Had been using it as a hold to clip from but there is plenty else to use. Nonetheless, got spooked and bailed.

Tricky to figure out on the onsight but actually only 1 hard move getting to the second bolt

Probably more like fr7a when you ignore the pockets. Decent route!
