Rockfax Description
8m. Climb leftwards to the arete from a block on the right (opposite the path to the cliff). A steep little number with good but fiddly protection. © Rockfax

Pulled over the overhang from the right hand side of the arete. Would have been harder to have moved over to the left hand side before pulling over. Otherwise really good bouldery route. Good solo, all holds positive enough to feel secure on at all times, all though may have to reach around a bit to find the best one when pulling through the overhang

Direct up the hanging arete is steeper, but actually easier and better. Going direct up the centre of the wall is much tougher.

Nice crossover move for hands. Jon's first solo attempt left him flailing around on poor green slopers unable to get up to the jug on the arete. He was lucky to get back down unscathed.
