Rockfax Description
Worth seeking out. Climb the sustained crack to ledges and a tree then move out left for a well-positioned finish up the arete. Well protected and a good bet for a first E1. © Rockfax

βeta: Wouldn't recommend as first E1 as the Rockfax says. It's safe but pretty fiddly gear (mostly micro-wires) and quite hard moves for the grade.
