Rockfax Description
12m. Nice easy climbing up the slabby face to the foot of the slanting crack, up this to finish. © Rockfax

Severe in my opinion. Harder than Eastern Arete.

Can't understand why no one likes this climb, I thought it was great. Out of the two MS routes on this buttress (Eastern Arête being the other one), I think this one deserves the 2 stars. Some great moves, especially climbing up the diagonal crack. Some great exposure and plenty of gear. I love it!

On the shunt, plenty lichen made it slippy on the feet.

Rock a bit crumbly at the top.

Starts off okay and then you get the choice of biscuit/sandy rock + no gear or lichenous rock + no gear... One I won't be returning to.

Grrr! Lichen & sharp finger-holds just below the crack 2/3 of the way up.
