A super route. A long pitch finishing up a flying arete. © Rockfax

One of the longer clip-ups on sandstone and at a reasonable grade. Start just right of the centre of the slab. Follow the obvious bolted line to finish up the right arete of the Narcissi groove.

Too far left at the start, and too far right at the finish. Nice climb though.

Horrible top section I wimped out on. Long climb tiring (humid during climb) and tricky start. One to have another bash at!

Found the roof at the bottom really hard. Couldn't reach the hold and there were not intermediates. Came off on the arete too.

Felt more like top end 6b for the start. Lovely route though.

Really good long climb. Pull through the roof was around 6b/+ in my opinion. Finished up the left hand side of the right arete (same as for Weeping Stump) as the logbook and topo descriptions imply, though the presence of bolts up the right hand of the left arete troubles me. May have to return and climb this way.

great climb, thought the first direct move was worth more than 6a+ then got freaked out at the top and didnt want to make the last moves! Perscribed myself a can of man the hell up!

Really good, the upper arete spoils the flow, but makes it a good long pitch.

Sandstone classic, apparently. Once you get halfway you see why! Great stuff. Ab'ed with 60m rope; just made it.
