Rockfax Description
The arete of the slab is fine climb, delicate with an interesting and bold-feeling detour out left onto a hanging flange. HVS for the faint of heart maybe? © Rockfax

Quick morning climb on rivelin before the rain set in. Nice route, wasn't quite sure where to move left onto the flange, went to high initially then to low, got it third time. First time i've legitimately used a mono to make progreaa on trad. After the fist move on the flange the main troubles are over.

Couldn't commit to the crux move, back off to rest and then didn't go back for it. Just head games, really annoying. It feels like you're going to swing out.

Felt completely terrifying. Got a proper elvis leg on the crux. Went somewhere between the left edge (near the flange) and Now Or Never. Felt scarier than Fringe Benefit. That pocket isn't as good as it looks.... Scary
