Rockfax Description
The right-hand arete of the face is climbed on its right side until it is possible to teeter around onto the front face to finish. Bold and precarious though a little escapable. © Rockfax

Climbed with gear in place so felt nearer E3/French 6b+/6c. Good moves and enjoyable in this style. Would be grim as OS as although excellent would be hard to work get post crux gear right first time. Don't really get the bit in the description about it being escapable, to where?

Took quite a few attempts at crux sequence but very good training value. climbed on mini traction.

Felt harder and alot more sustained than desolation angel. Also I climbed the arete basically solely on the right, so don't know if that means I did abit of journey into freedom or just the right route and the description is confusing. Post zogg smash made this pretty intense!
