20m. Tackles the well-cleaned convex slab and wall right of Big A55 Arete. Good holds lead up to a shallow, orange coloured ramp (crux). Ascend the wall above to join the bolt belay/lower-off on Big A55 Arete. TAKE CARE NON STAINLESS BOLTS NEED REPLACING. Worth rebolting and worthy of a star.

emlynroberts 23 Sep, 2012 Lead Steep but good holds. the orange part may shed some rock with traffic. I would belay a little out of the direct line of fire. And if you clip the last bolt as you go over the top, remove it on the way down to avoid rope drag when belaying your second.
