Climbs the arete that forms the right hand side of the cave entrance. After a blind move to gain the arete and crack line climb the arete on torques and enhanced edges. At about 2/3 height move leftwards out of the crack onto a series of natural edges with a thin move giving access to the good upper crack/flake and belay. This route is different to many of the Works routes in that it uses many natural placements whilst at the same time being deceptively steep. There is also a bolt in place for the belayer on the belay ledge at the foot of the route.

Got it! First route of the day after a warm up on the traverse. Getting past the second bolt is desperate as the feet are poor and you're off balance but once the slot in the groove is hooked (not too bad when you can see it!) things get a bit easier. The torquing crack and clipping off the flatty on the arete is pumpy. Managed to get a bit back hanging off the betts holds higher up the arete. The crimp by the last bolt wasn't too bad, fine to clip off, held it together for the last few moves and it was in the bag! I reckon harder than Jaz and White Goods at WG so M8 is stingy, even with the improved crimp by the past bolt. I'd say a tough M8+ compared to the stuff at WG.

Thought I had a chance of onsighting it but that ambition was shattered by the vicious start on poor feet - had to have a rest. No pushover above with a sustained torquing section going into better holds up the arete, a thin crimp and a sprint finish. Had several rests as got into redpoint mode. Pulled off a small flake next to the last bolt which created a slightly better crimp next to the poor one - still no jug though! Second go took ages to get past the second bolt as in the failing light couldn't see the drilled hold in the groove below the torquing crack. Eventually found it and figured out how best to hook it. Carried on to the top but too tired so gave up at the last bolt without clipping it - exciting fall with crampons coming close to Steven's head.

Jesus, the 'thin' move was desperate, couldn't get my pic to stick at all! Terrible feet low down meant it was seriously pumpy by the time I got half way...
