Rockfax Description
To the right of the open corner is a blunt arete which is undercut on its right-hand side. This route follows the crack to the left of the arete. Not very well named, thankfully. © Rockfax

First route of the day and more than a little hung-over. Pleased I wasn't leading. Humid conditions made it quite greasy and the bottom felt like E1

Ian tried to lead but had to back off. He'd placed 2 bits gear. I then led through.

Probably the pumpyist route I have ever done at the grade. Totally boxed out of my head topping out, simple moves on jugs, just steep.

Lower section got a bit pumpy. Might have just been a bit of early morning greasiness though. Good route anyway - steep start, juggy and well protected.
