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

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

Start felt worth E4 to me with no pads. Above that E3 is fair.

What was I thinking? First ever E4 attempt in direct sun on hottest October day on record. Got to crux OK but failed to even consider committing to it. Would be a good route to try with a massive snowdrift or a sea of pads.

Really enjoyable moves, I was scared without ever feeling like I was going to fall off. It was much more overhanging than it looked from the bottom! Felt more like soft E4 5c.

Probably only E3 5c, but good route

felt pretty easy for 6a, although i can imagine it being a scary lead.

some beta provided from both Alex and Reeve. Nice line, nice moves. Shame about the close proximity of the buttress just right.
