Rockfax Description
A fairly tricky climb that follows an impressive line loosely based on the right-hand arete of the face. Start at a small pinnacle close to the arete.
Stand on the pinnacle and make some tricky moves up the wall to stand on a ledge on the arete. Climb on good holds around and up the left side of the arete to the top. © Rockfax

Climbed right by a wasp/bee's nest. Didn't look like bees, but seemed big for wasps. Glad to be moving quickly.
