3 pitches. The third and hardest mega-classic on this part of the crag. Climbs the wall and slab of Arcturus before breaking out rightwards to tackle the impressive hanging rib via sustained wall climbing, initially quite serious.

What a route. Bold from 2nd belay but there is gear before you launch across the wall to the peg and gear at the peg. Skyhook is bomber. Great climbing after that. Stunning.

Lead 2&3 together. Great route. Felt pretty steady and there is plenty of good gear just after you clip the peg. I don't think it is as serious as the guide suggested.

Hol led pitches 1 and 3; I led the crux 2nd pitch. Really pleased to get this clean and onsight. Brilliant climbing, if a bit grubby in places. Pitch 1 was no pushover either!

Tricky move off the belay. Climbed direct from the peg up to the crack, which seemed to be the obvious way?

Sky hook really takes the edge of the first few moves. Peg in poor condition but you can back it up with a great 3 rock near the jug. Climbing fantastic.

Awesome route in a great postion, very bouldery move over the overhang then plenty more interest up the arete. Just about enough gear but spaced to start! Lots of rests between hard bits. Other two pitches are also quite fun...
