Very tough start up the arete with 6b moves steady after that

Tough start 6b

ssutton 23/Sep/17 Lead dog

Fell off trying to go past the 2nd bolt, seems like a hold may have come off.

Much harder since the demise of the good positive foothold on the arete.

djones66 06/Aug/17 Lead dog

Sodding hard for the first 20 feet! Rested on the first bolt and had a couple of tries before finding a way that worked for me. Small people beware! On the other hand, you cant really hurt yourself on it , so have a go.

A joke! Had to stick clip the second bolt to do the crux past the first. After that it's pretty easy.

Missed crucial foothold on the arete. Also should have reached round the arete higher up with left arm. Interesting all the way though.

The lower arete wasn't as hard as it had initially looked, with the help of a hold around the left of the arete.

Not certain I ticked the right route here as no longer have a guidebook, but it was a 6a+ in this part of the crag. Crux was the start, then straightforward.

Bit of everything, delicate at the bottom, feels in your face in the mid and then brilliant little slab at the top.
