Rockfax Description
The black, bulging crack in the arete is approached easily and then gives a good pumpy battle with friendly protection. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
E1 5c and not at all pumpy, one stiff and slightly technical pull into the crack then steady VS jamming. Well worth the effort.
