Rockfax Description
12m. Excellent and airy. Climb the block in the gully then step up and traverse left out to the far arete; the tall can reach a useful foothold, the short will have to dangle. Finish up an exposed shallow groove. © Rockfax

βeta: An intimidating traverse. If you nip across quickly without putting any gear in then a fall from the far arete would be very painful!

emmanderson23 14 Sep, 2019 2nd Little bit scary to watch Hamish looking sketchy at the end of the traverse with only 1 lil red cam at the start. Also a little bit wild on second as I couldn’t reach any of the foot holds on the traverse so had to cut loose. Definitely would have cried if I’d lead it
