10m.

Rockfax Description
A bold outing that weaves across the impressive buttress. Since the demise of the ancient bolt runner, it is pretty much unprotected where it matters. Start under the arete and climb up and right through the bulge to a slot, then move right to another. Take a deep breath and finish direct. © Rockfax

tmawer 8 Oct, 2017 TR Fantastic climbing. Direct finish has a brutal pull on it, and original finish to the right is more in keeping.
