Rockfax Description
An enjoyable exercise that follows the thin crack and small corner/groove in the arete right of Ra. Start as for Ra.
Gain the first ledge on Ra and move right to, and climb a crack to the next break. Pull through the overhang into the small corner/groove from the left and finish up this. © Rockfax

Went well. Had a nightmare clipping a cam in the first large horizontal break, and the resulting pump almost cost me the climb. Gaining the next horizontal break was tricky, but pulling around the roof to get established on the slab was OK.

2dn Brian in June 2014. Harder to lead. Need to learn to arm bar and foot jam . Found placing gear in the wide break the hardest.Found a good shoulder jam before the final wall.

Almost didn't get on this as the day was wearing on but am glad I did. I would say benchmark E2 5b, with no real difficulties but sustained well protected climbing and ample pro. Well worth 2 stars imho.
