Rockfax Description
Start up the arete to the flake then traverse right just above the pruned sapling to the right edge of the face. Climb to a small cave then finish direct on broken flakes. Sadly escapable. © Rockfax

βeta: tough for VS even following the correct line as the gear at the top isnt too great, some good holds though - but unfortunately you have to leave them behind to finish !

βeta: tried this at the end of a day when i was climbing easily at vs and had to back off it. a few months later came back when i was climbing hvs and still did'nt fancy it so much so that i lead the E1 to the left.

βeta: Got to add to the concern about the grade for the indicated route. I wimped out of the lead due to the poor gear for the tech grade and ground fall potential. Passed the arete flake it is of sustained difficulty.

βeta: you dont get VS's with ground fall potential like this route. i placed a number 3 (?) nut in the flake on the left and traversed above the sappling. Overall i didnt find the little gear which was available too bad however some of the moves are sketchy. overall, a great route which sure as hell gets the adrenaline going!

βeta: High in the VS grade, I traversed under the sapling and had no gear except 2 side runners in the diff flake, even with these the start and finish are quite run out. The most commonly climbed finish seems to go straight up to the cave, then slightly right of the line on the topo using a good flake hold

βeta: a lacklustre line,it starts on the arete like the other route you need to place a tape on the flake of the left arete before traversing all the back right up the blunt rib on the far right right of the buttres thats practically in the diff gully, then a couple of good moves on questionable gear lead to an exciting finish. Has the direct up the slab been done as the line in the guidebook indicates it sure as hell doesn;'t look like 4c!

βeta: The line in the topo does seem to differ quite a bit from that in the old BMC 1989 guide. The line in the ROCKFAX does feel more like HVS 4c/5a and encroaches on the line of the direct Arete.

Reaver2k 11 Nov, 2007 Lead O/S Scared myself abit silly on this but, but was much more controlled than I had expected! From the bottom you can see there is a run out section (hadn't been told it was HVS without side-runner, so avoided it at all costs...) First moves are quite technical but nice. Gear quite pumpy to place at the break. Move our right, the sapling has been cut and makes a very useful handhold. People have been saying (and EG agrees) that you are supposed to stand up and traverse along this ledge but I couldn't see any hand holds above it, and would rather have the security of gear for the next couple of moves. So put in a couple of medium cams into the sapling break. Made a tricky mantleshelf move, reversed it because I was out of balance and ropes were twisted. Stepped up again and made it with more ease. Placed a very precarious (phsycological) 0.5 cam into a very shallow and apperantly very brittle hold (tell me off why don't you). Worked out the sequence very carefully, and made the moves with relative ease. Then came the move up into the cave, off a small sharp flake crimp and a decent hold. Messed this up and pretty much slapped into the cave, luckily I caught this but had an awful case of the "Ooo-errrs" because I knew I shouldn't done that, it was too risky! More large gear in the crack, up and over the lip (easier than it looks) and a tricky move to get your hand on the top ledge! Lovely, how can this only be 1 stars? Tricky for VS, although I am only a relatively new to VS leader!

Reaver2k 17 Apr, 2007 2nd rpt Had led this the previous week and tom fancied a bash at it. Originally he was thinking of trying the E1, the top of his grade, but after feeling the precarious sling boulder, he stepped up, didn't see the moves with ease and backed down. Didn't place as much gear as me from there on out! Quickly ran along the ledge and up without too much trouble and with his only gear the sling. Into the cave, some more solid gear and then out and over. I found it harder than the previous week again, and can't believe I commited all the way up! Not usually something I would do!
