'Superb gritstonesque arete!'
Probably only E1 as the crux is low and the top has a cam placement actually on the arete. E2 to solo.

Highballed. Fine climbing up an attractive feature. Would have liked to savour the moves, but everything passes in something of a blur of heightened tension of both psyche and grip when I'm highballing by myself! (2 mats, no spotter.)

Might actually have been able to get up it properly if I'd bought my own shoes along and didn't have to wear Will's pair which were a couple of sizes too big.

Nice little route.

Only top-roped it today as a few of the crucial holds were a bit wet, need to come back and lead it soon.

Cool arete climbing with some nice moves to reach the safe top-out now that the ivy bush has been removed.

Scary at the top! Great climb I guess the more you do it the easier it gets.

Lovely little Griststoneesque arete in the middle of bristol! I agree with Mark though in that it doesn't have the same serious feel to it that an E3 5b should.

Mark Davies PK 08/Jul/14 TR rpt

The 5b bit is halfway, top move is 5a so E2 5b is about right Although may even be E1 as there is a friend 1 cam slot for the top bit actually on the arete. 2 stars.

Lovely little route. Similar in difficulty to something like Crescent Arete at Stanage. Ground up, no falls, no mats.

Down climbed. Wasn't ready to commit.

James Moyle 24/Aug/10 Solo O/S

Climbed up 3/4 of the way and back twice before committing to the top. Done above a mat (looks more like a postage stamp towards the top!). A lovely route with two nice rockover moves. A difficult climb to grade as it is 5b for sure, but the E grade is more tricky to pin down.

Delightful climb with some really nice moves. I top roped it for now but will go back to solo, just need to take some mats and mates with me! The top out is a bit sktechy because its some big reaches/alomst a dyno, but to good ledges.

Cheeky lunch-time excursion yielded this matted solo of a classy little gem. Of course, the guide book grade is not given for the use of a mat. Even so, this handsome arete is outrageously overgraded. Way easier than the similar Pebble Arete at Stanage. In fact, the routes at this tiny craglet would be better served by boulder grades. V0?
