Rockfax Description
20m. The superb, bold and technical arete is the best route on the cliff and maybe in the whole area. Follow the arete on its right-hand side throughout. A pre-placed and pre-clipped runner over to the right, in Stargazer, reduces the grade to E5 6b. © Rockfax

Got Calum to clean it. Fell off low down a few times with some amusing swings. A bit sad not to onsight it but the climbing makes up for it, especially doing it the same visit as Moonflower.

ground up, second go. Should have flashed, never mind still an awesome route. Will be back to do the E7 way.

First go, again -- suits me and whatever remains of my style. Still a lovely route.

Been after this one for a while! Really, really brilliant. Technical enough to make you think you're a real rock star and just enough to get the nerves going. Lowered off a hanging rope rather than doing battle with the 12 feet of overganging jungle at the top, good enough for me.

Rue not cleaning and chalking the route properly when i placed the side runners, but wanted to 'fl-onsight' it...! Happy birthday to me anyhow, first go, ground up after a scritty slip off a hold on the arete. Brilliant climb, longer obviously but easier technically than Fresh Arete.

Abbed down and gave the route a quick brush, led with pre cliped side runners. Need to come back and finish it off properly

fantastic technical climbing with a bold feeling, dynamic finish. Abbed to clean it up a bit, put the side runners in then made a decent 1st effort but slipped off about level with the gear as I overlooked one of the holds I'd just cleaned and chalked (doh!). 10mins rest then got it next go.

With the side-runner (E5). Wanted to do this for years, since I saw the picture of Nick Dixon doing it in the Dave Jones book. Abbed it first to clean it and place side-runner; flashed the climbing. A very hard E6 to onsight solo? Dynamic at times. Top notch route, though!
