Rockfax Description
24m. The soaring arete is a fearsome challenge; a western End of the Affair perhaps? From the first stance on Central Climb move out to the arete and climb it firing on all cylinders. There is gear low down but a speedy belayer may still be needed. Very balancy, very scary and very, very good! © Rockfax

I think the real crux is getting the climb in good nick. Its not overally technical,but feels insecure ish throughout enough to terrify you,especially above the backbreaking landing. A bloody good line.
