Rockfax Description
An extra-polished first pitch leads to more-open climbing above. Start by the slab below the big diamond-shaped wall.
1) 5a, 15m. The corner is slippery and awkward - big gear needed. Belay on a ledge.
2) 4b, 15m. Climb a crack on the left near the arete to a ledge, then move up to another ledge. A short groove leads to a tree belay.
3) 4c, 15m. Climb the slab until tricky moves lead up left to gain the arete, which leads to the top. © Rockfax

I know where the friction went though: to the top pitch. There are good small wires just to the left of the arête and the rock is unbelievably grippy. I really enjoyed that pitch.
