15m. Start below the large tree, 5m left of the arete. Climb cracks to a step right near the top. A couple of thin moves gain the top. Traversing right to the arete before finishing reduces the grade to E1 5a.

Nicholas Wylie 03/Jul Lead O/S

Traversed right at the top. Enjoyable climbing with a fairly scary top section.

I would recommend bringing a nut tool and brush on lead. RPs to be had but wouldn't fancy falling on them. Also loose in places. Strangely enjoyable.

Gave this a good clean. Poor gear in loose positions. Felt a bit short to nail the topout sloper Down climbed and took the E1 exit fairly comfortably - felt good. . Could probably have made the E2 but bottle crashed.

After successfully soloing Nijinski is the Hunter i thought this must go a little easier, good route but pretty dirty due to lack of traffic i guess. Very bold finish but either than that pleasant climbing.

fell on the crux move, finished on e1 variation

Spicy at the top, and thin on gear, rest is a path.

Had to back off this two days previously due to rain. Glad I did because the top out moves were thin enough when dry. Cheeky lasso of the small rowan at the top helped, as the gear is very poor. Falling more or less the entire length of the route not impossible.

Didn't top out, last couple of moves took a while to figure out but I'm confident I can get it next time.

Theres nice moves on this, too bad about the manky bit in the middle.

All about the top out . . .

toping out is harder if you're short-ish. apart from that easy but scary climbing

last moves at top pretty scary as I hadnt brought the right sized cam and the flake for last micro wire flexed rather worryingly when I placed it!
