Rockfax Description
A wildly positioned final pitch. The first two pitches can be wet, and under these conditions it is better to abseil to the large belay ledge at the start of the top pitch. Start at a wide crack in the short wall at the base of the arete.
1) 4a, 11m. Climb the wide crack and continue to a grassy ledge with a huge iron ring and belay.
2) 4b,11m. Unprotected. Move up left on sloping hand-ledges, past a loose block, to a large block and belay ledge below the corner just left of the arete.
3) 5c, 12m. Make a series of long moves past 2 bolts to the small overhang, peg. Pull out left to a good crack and make one last reach past a peg for the top. © Rockfax

All in one pitch from ground up, very wet middle section. Came off on first attempt at final reach for the top, Gutted! Wild moves really well protected.

Really pleased to rush out and do this. Have wanted to do it for a while. Soloed the first two pitches not easy! The top pitch realy packs it in and is hard and reach from the outset. Top move is excellent. Just commit to it!

Second Pitch only. Rested about 2-3 feet from the top after messing up sequence. Very pumpy route and reachy for short people
