Rockfax Description
The right arete of the concave wall is tackled on its left side. This used to be a soft E4 but don't be fooled, there is still a hard move before the gear arrives. Finish on the right. © Rockfax

βeta: Given that most people reckon the crux is 6a, committing to this at 15-20 ft up makes this E4 ... but only just, as the landing is good and it's probably only just 6a. But don't be fooled by above comments about soloing it, unless you can cruise Edge Lane - I was well glad of small cams, medium friends and a small wire, with great climbing all the way to the top.

βeta: I did take a rope and was quite glad of it. The top bit is fairly easy but I wouldn't have been so keen on soloing it since there is plenty of scope for good gear anyway.

βeta: Aye, don't bother with the rope- it'll only get in the way on the boulder problem start.

Kipper-Phil Smith 7 Aug, 2016 TR Very windy day almost got blown off the crag. Fabulous route got to come back with a big mat and get this lead. Seems as hard as most of the E4 we done so far this year
