Rockfax Description
The right arete of the big slab is a lonely lead. From runners in the corner move out right then balance into ever more trouble. The centre of the slab direct is Sad, Tired and Old, E5 6b. The first ascensionist described it as having "five star climbing and zero star independence". © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A stunning line up the hanging arĂȘte of the slab. A classic frightener.
