Rockfax Description
Climb the groove in the arete to the flat roof then step left to a grasping exit. Fortunately large cams in the final break (hard for the short to place) reduce the stress levels. © Rockfax

Top not as hard as I thought it was going to be but definitely a bit dirty. Had a big ol' rest on the ledge which might be classed as cheating.

Pleased to get this today because failed to do the top crux a couple of years ago. One fall lower down today but returned to ground up it next go with no problems. Great route.

In bad condition but plodded on anyway, had to brush the holds higher up due to scrittle and general dirtiness whilst on lead and then took the lob from the slopers at the top break. Finished up croton oil flake on next attempt.

On Ians gear to the break, one to lead in full maybe. And probably using the groove!

Ellis lobbed off at the top. I pulled the rope the ropes and led it on his gear. Have done the route years ago too

Greasy and a bit scrittly at the top. Cool route.

With many, many falls. The bit David found tricky was hard but doable in stages. The bit he found easy was utterly impossible.

Quite hard for the grade and committing at first climbing past the RPs. Great gear overall though.
