The central arete gives a fine route, climbed on its left-hand side throughout. A distant side-runner is often used at E5, though the upper section remains bold. © Rockfax

Tired on toprope a good few times. Was cruising up it each time so went for the lead. Foot popped going for the good break and took a whipper. Only just stopped before the ground, definitely not recommended!!

Did it clean a few times on top-rope, will try and get back soon to do it on the sharp end. Great climbing.

Flash with Beta on top-rope, guess that means she's a goer.

Watched Alex top rope a few times to get beta. Used different sequence in the end which felt more secure without practice. First E6 flash.

Flashed to big jug, one move before break but was a spanner and thought the heel was on the undercut, not e obvious sidepull. Did with outrageous right then right again sequence. then properly. Did not fancy the lead! Strong clean dispatch from tom.

Quick evening smash. E6? Quite reachy. Just cool arête climbing.

First E6. First headpoint. Preplaced gear and no side runner. Probably soft. Lovely moves though.

jwpil 10/Jul/14 TR RP

One miss read move then had it second go. A superb sequence. Would be a very committing crux on lead, maybe 6a?

Had belayed Barrows on this last year. Got warmed up, did it and then got rained/hailed off. Brilliant route, really enjoyed it. Some quality arete thigh pinching after the crux stretch.
