Rockfax Description
A steep arete but at an amenable grade and with good protection - the crux is easiest on the left. Excellent and elegant climbing up a rather unlikely looking line for the grade. © Rockfax

poor rope management lead to massive drag after going round the arete - stopped me topping out (to the right, a high foot and undercut?) so had to downclimb and exit on the shelf right.

Generaly a very nice climb. Should have done it clean, but I got very pumped trying unsucessfully to get Andrews cam out which had walked and become overcamed at the top of the flake on the right of the arete. I then tried going round the arete way too high and couldn't get my balance, eventually pumped out and fell. Seccond attempt i went roud the arette much lower which was definately easier (nice little dimple for left foot). I found the crux fine, just case of getting your hands in the right place before you make the reach (i undercut with my right instead of using the higher ledge).

djones66 29/Jun/13 Lead O/S

Excellent route. Interesting all the way. After getting the big break (above the crux) near the top, its jugs all the way (good thing too). I made a full-on jump and slap for the break at the 'long reach', being only 5ft 4". Seemed more likely to work than any other move I could think of - and it did. There are solid wires to protect whatever moves you choose there.

stuffed up on lead. Top roped without much drama

Ragnaar 03/Aug/10 Lead O/S

Soon gets steep as you step round to the left, crux is tricky but ok for the tall. The top-out is sensational!

A very nice climb. I wasn't sure how it was meant to finish. It is actually possible to go straight up the arete at the top on good but completely blind jugs. I think the guide sends you right a bit

I had an epic on this. I found the crux exceedingly reachy and very hard to complete in balance. gutted that I fell [repeatedly], as it's a fantastic route. Will lead it clean on next visit.

HARD, theres a reason this is an HVS, brilliant start although tough on the feet, the crux was trying to get over the over hang once completed theres a nice friendly thread to take full advantage of, then the over hanging top out make for an interesting finish - i couldn't complete it but want to try again.

Guide says gear abounds but found it much poorer, cracks that look like they take wires but don't. Still, just about enough. Crux is committing, gear below it was rubbish. 5b for me being a bit shorter.
