Cold! Late November sun only gets parts of the route, and late in the afternoon, it’s was breezy too and bitter in the shade. The rockfax guide is wrong on the belay locations and also wrong with regards to the line. Rachel led p1, to belay under the arête proper. There were 2 bolts up and left but they looked like they ran out (plus it looked scrappy). Followed the bolts on the slab just right of the arête instead? This met the line of bolts from the left at 2/3 height. Crux near the top. P3 goes round to the left of th arête again before moving back on to it after a couple of bolts, fine at 6b. P4 goes straight up the arête, slightly spaced bolts in places but no hard climbing, 6a. The line looks incredible, the climbing felt hard 6b+ but it was cold. Trad gear unnecessary although I used two slings on threads on p2. Had to pull on a thread to clip a bolt at the top of pitch 2. A bit of an adventure but good. Dulf looked good but bolts spacing was a joke, 6m runouts?! We would have put log slings on some of them had it not been so cold (whilst abbing past). It would have take wires and cams too

Very good. Rockfax has the belays in the wrong place at the top of pitch 1 and 3.

All pitches led. Awesome positions.

Overated but undergraded. Slightly committing 6c would be nearer the mark. Having said that, the grading at Bellecombe is generally severe.

What a feature; amazing. Pitch 1 was a little chossy with the remaining pitches on better rock. A few nuts were welcome on run out sections... three stars for setting.

Good climbing, great position....when not lead astray by bolts leading off into the choss!

Nice route. I lead P1&2 as one, then Andy got suckerred into the chossy wall on the left. I did a bit of swinging about to retrieve draws from there, then lead P3. Angus lead P4.
