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

Such a good sequence at the top, clip the tat and quest on.

one fall only one move off the top, but after taking all the gear out so i'm pretty happy for a first smash at an E5

Boom, first E5 of the year. Actually a nice one to get on, safe enough, two sections of 'get the gear in and sprint to the next rest'.

Crimpy top arete. Sweet fun.

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.

James Marshall 25/Jul/15 Lead O/S

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.

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

Good climbing up to the arete, then the arete is the best position I climbed all trip.
