22m.

Rockfax Description
22m. A long and impressive arete with steep and intimidating climbing that is high in the grade. Some of the rock is a bit soft. Avoid the initial bulge on the left then pull back right to a ledge. Continue up the scary upper section to an easier finish. The route is often started from the gully to the left which is a little easier. © Rockfax

Graeme Hammond 24 Apr, 2016 Lead RP Some bits onsight (top and bottom), but flashed the run out section on a tied off abseil rope and beta from abseiling the line, bold but easy climbing. Is a loose block after pegs but before the decent gear in the crack.

MNA123 21 Aug, 2010 2nd Tried to lead it direct which is hard, tried to lead it going round to the left and forgot to stand on the massive ledge with my left foot so felt hard and bottled it. John led it after and its easy climbing just run out. New peg on the ledge.
