Rockfax Description
The highest arete, on its far side. Previously graded at V4 for some reason. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Right arete of the rear face of the block, accessed via the slab to avoid the direct difficulties.

NB Never actually graded V4 - that's the left arete/prow of the rear face from a sit start. Clearly a name mix up at some point.

harrison 27 Aug, 2018 Sent O/S The V4 is the other (left) arete of the face. Seems to be three ways to do this arete: 1) Start left on the slab and traverse along the high break into the arete (f3) 2) Start standing under the arete and do 1 crux move to the high break (f4+) 3) Sit Start into 2 (f6B+) Its quite good climbing into the arete on its RHS from the twin cracks left of Pebble Wall as well (f3+/f4)

harrison 27 Aug, 2018 Sent O/S Duplicate of Useless Arete. I'd suggest distinguishing between this and 'Useless Arete' by calling one 'Useless Slab and Arete' - meaning Useless Arete starts with the smear layback crux to gain the high break and Usless Slab and Arete bypasses it.

James Oakes 28 Sep, 2017 Sent x Climbed first on the right and then further left. I assume this is the problem that was graded V4, starting with both hands in the break the arete is climbed mainly on its left hand side. It's a much better problem this way!
