Rockfax Description
14m. The arete is delicate and the gear sparse where it matters. After an easy start, boldly layback the right-hand side of the arete to terrain where you can breathe again. © Rockfax

Need to lead this. One tricky move layback side crimp. Place gear around corner first long extender needed.

Bold but the right holds are right where you need them. Look for the holds before each sequence and you'll be fine. I didn't layback the arete, I laybacked the flake with a hand on the arete. One side runner in MtMM.

Cragrat Rich 07/Apr/11 Lead O/S

Placed a token useless RP in a seam (must stop expecting to put gear where the guidebook says there is none) and a low cam round the arete. It all felt pretty bold, but went ok once committed (as is often the case)

A pretty hard move where you don't expect it caught me off guard even on second, straight after watching Rich struggle on the same move!

Tried to lead, backed off the hard move. Didn't have the confidence in the gear. Turns out the move is quite easy, disappointing!
