Rockfax Description
A pleasant route up the arete. A hard move low down to gain the easier ramp-line provides the crux. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
New route on the extreme left of the area behind the ventilation tower. 6 Bolts to lower off. Reachy!

A difficult start for shorties is made fractionally easier by taking the route up to the left on smaller holds and slab than trying to reach the high jug on the right.
