Rockfax Description
14m. The jutting axe-edged arete gives a great climb, bold and committing. From the good runners on Noonday Ridge move back right and, heart in mouth, layback and balance up the arete until jugs (or the air) offer some relief. High in the grade. © Rockfax

Just a short session out so started and ended on this. First time really struggled. Second time, started to get a sequence but slipped and scraped the entire right shin (ouch). Third and fourth times, getting very closed. I now can't get this out of my head - I have to lead feel inevitable, which is a bit scary.... what a line!

By the skin of my teeth. Down climbed to the ground from the move to the top jug on the first go. Foot popped just after I got the jug. Such a good line. Classic

I stayed on the left side of the arrete at the top, and apparently the route goes right onto the slab..???!!! Felt hard and scary; wasn't sure i was going to make it... very glad i did. wouldn't like to have taken that lob!
