Rockfax Description
The arete left of the big groove of Tactician usually has a tempting thread dangling from its upper section. Start as for Tactician but break left along a crack to a junction with War Games. Move right around the arete and then climb a hard crack to a ledge. Finish up the arete above in a magnificent position. © Rockfax

Really good but a little escapable at the top

Luke Brooks 16/Aug/16 Lead O/S

Went too far right at the top. Meh.

The big fluffy tat is gone. There's still a thread there but higher up so you have to do a few moves of the crux to clip it

Low in the grade, great position on the top arete.

Great for a first e5 because most of the gear is placed from rests and it really isn't very run out at the top.

Great climbing in a brilliant position

A little contrived but worth it for the awesome airy finish - some hard & runout moves but super safe fallout zone. Threads were looking a little crusty, but you can get bomber gear just below them. Great.

Haven't quite got my trad multi E5's in a day arms back yet. Took the ride off the top arete.

A bit of a clip up really, but really good route, worth 2 stars. I backed the tats with a few bomber wires and cams on the break below and run it out to the top. Techy headwall but the difficulties are soon over. Low in the grade

Fell off on the crux onto dodgy looking thread, backed up with a good wire. Got it second go- wild route, pumpy low down as well as a very pumpy crux
