Bridge up the groove to the left of the square-cut corner of Turn of the Century. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Arete left of turning the century sharing same lower off. 4 bolts. This is a rather contrived line. On the first ascent the arete was climbed in its entirety to the triangular niche. this involved a one armed mantle and was hard. the grade was a conservative estimate. You need blinkers to repeat it this way so just climb what you want. 5 plus if everything is used.

Using big holds on L, 5+ but some wet holds. Couldn't fathom out moves directly up arête even on TR.

harold walmsley 08/Jul/16 Lead O/S

Led it via the easier arete on the L then did the R arete on TR but used sequences on the route to the R low down before moving round the arete and bridged on th the L arete at one point higher up. No way the R arete direct canbe 6b the easy way is only 6a

If this is a 6b, then my father's the Pope. After dogging and cheating finally got the crux by mantling off my right thumb, my right foot moving up next to it, left foot on a side hold and my left hand stretched up to a flake undercling that would look small to a mouse to keep it all together. The 6b next door was much more reasonable.
