Rockfax Description
Varied and excellent. Climb the right arete, then the groove of the regular route followed by the flying arete above. Spectacular.

Tom Redwood 1 Sep, 2018 Lead O/S No idea about the right arête, where the line shows there's nothing at 5a and the ground rises up so you can just walk up heigher alongside, that can't be 3 star so surely going left is correct? I started right before going left up the pocketed E1 then right back onto the line. Getting into and along the top grove is fun.
