Rockfax Description
Plough up the furrowed groove (thread), then finish up the juggy and steep arete of the tower - a very long reach is needed to get started. The groove on the right gives a much easier option, reducing the overall grade to VDiff. © Rockfax

Mick King 23 Apr Solo G/U Took a few goes to convince myself this was the right line up the upper arete, as my old guide book was giving it VDiff, and it certainly wasn't feeling like all the other VDiffs here! Was fine once committed.
