Rockfax Description
The flaky seams right of the arete give a fine balancy pitch with a rockover to reach the niche. Finish leftwards. © Rockfax

Delightful. Apparently felt much safer than the VS by its side. Protected by many large cams.

Bit off to the right on the finish

Mark Duncan 12/May/17 Lead rpt

Led this after previously following. Took a fall 1/3 on the flake when foot slipped because of slightly damp conditions. Great gear all round though. Started again and did in one. Great last moves with a little bit of spice!

Lovely. First crux at third height, second at the very top if you go left. Well protected where it mattered.

With side runners that were rather high so cheated a bit. Bit of an eliminate line but still very good climbing.

Excellent, on good clean rock, could do with a few less holds near the top to push you left as it would be easy to to top out differently
