Rockfax Description
A 'near classic' up the arete. Climb steeply up the arete to a short slab and head warily up this - be aware of the possibility of dirt which has washed down from the ledge above. Finish as for the last route. © Rockfax

The crux has obvious holds so won't get easier with practice. It is what it is. That's why I like it. Get it wrong and you're....
