Rockfax Description
18m. A fine climb up the big arete that is the chief feature of the centre of the cliff. Climb the left side of the arete to ledges then pull up to the hanging flake/groove with difficulty. Continue to higher ledges where more tricky climbing is needed to access the A-shaped cracks. Finish right, then left. © Rockfax

Puma 24 Jun, 2014 Lead The crux is strenuous and requires a lot of thought, the ground above and below is easier. The route is dirty at the moment with a lot of lichen on the rock at the exit of the crux. Hung on gear at this point to figure out how to proceed. Easy once you commit.

Simon Caldwell 7 Aug, 2007 Lead Did the crux, but got the next bit wrong, reversed, ran out of strength, and rested on the rope for a bit. Next attempt I got the right holds and it was easy. Super route, not really that sustained as claimed by the guidebook, there's a clearly defined crux and the rest is more like Severe.
