Rockfax Description
The original and best of all its incarnations. Start awkwardly right of the arete and make some strenuous moves leftwards. Continue above on good pockets to the third break. Traverse left and finish up the crack to a wondrous mantel top-out - enjoy the view! Traversing right at the top drops the grade to 6a+ 5b. Finishing right and up from the third break is also 6b 5c. © Rockfax
