Rockfax Description
20m. The imposing rounded arete is low in the grade (which is nice) and quite superb - a moorland classic. A crack and groove leads out to the arete at half-height. This gives sustained climbing (big cams) to an exciting finish up the pocketed headwall that might leave you gasping and grasping. © Rockfax

Have to agree with the new guide this isn't E3 but is steady E2 though probably still 5c. VS jamming until the traverse left, then with bomber cams lay back the arĂȘte (despite the good gear this feels a bit bold) then stroll up the juggy head wall. Stunning :)

Awesome - To say low in grade for E2 and 5b in BMC guide is a bit harsh. Thought pretty full on.

Both lead. Superb climbing up the arete and feels easy for E3 (is it E2 now?)
