Rockfax Description
12m. Devious though with some good moves and a certain logic to the line. Follow Primadonna up the right-hand side of the arete until forced out right below an overlap. Pull over this to reach a second overlap then trend back left (beware of a loose flake) to the upper arete and an exposed finish. © Rockfax

Really nice climbing. Although pretty run out at the top!

I couldn't climb over the overlap after the first traverse.

Came off trying to traverse diagonally up leftwards rather then traversing horizontally first then going up (on the second traverse). Got it second try. Gear is fantastic in the second traverse. First traverse felt bold!

Pumpy! Nice route though. That flake won't be around forever especially if people are daft enough to put cams behind it.

Very poor attempt!! Needed a winch for the final arete. Apparently made for entertainment/photo - opportunities for spectators! Don't think I'll have another go!

Did the crux then ended up crippled by rope drag on my right rope as it firmly jammed itself in the undercut flake making the pull round onto the face nearly impossible, once I dumped the rope things eased. Few!

Climbed to break, moved right as per instructions, but it all got a bit too bold. Down-climbed stripping gear.
