Rockfax Description
A fine exposed diagonal climb that can be a bit dusty. Cams for the horizontals might be found useful. Finish up the lovely arete with a tricky last move. © Rockfax

A lovely route with fantastic holds and comfy stops for gear. Without cams it could be a bit exposed.

Exposed as Fuck, Gud holds on rock over type moves. gear a bit shit if you got no smallish cams, (near top all horizontal placements). eg. size 0.5 - 1. Nausiatingly Scary exposed top out! very good however! :)
