'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.

lieraza 6 May Lead β Gear already in (although there's so little to place that putting it in yourself wouldn't add too much difficulty...) and mats on the ground, so definitely a lower grade for me on this.

evhall 6 May Lead RP very nice moves - even though such a short route it is worth doing - we had bouldering mats so probably E1 more realistic

James Moyle 24 Aug, 2010 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.

Stefan Kruger 9 Aug, 2005 Solo O/S 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?
