Rockfax Description
Climb the arete on its right-hand side, until level with the base of The Blurter groove. Swing left around the arete and sprint to a large ledge, taking care with a loose block. Finish direct up steep rock. Other variations on the arete section are inferior. © Rockfax

Very pleasant balancy climbing. Wasn't the best plan doing it on a windy day...

Bad route reading again. Did the awkward move then failed to get the easier part

Balancey climbing. Gear is fairly poor. Top-end E2 imo.

Cracking route that I found very intimidating and committing. Very satisfying moves up arête on the left side - good for the not so tall maybe? Nui's first E2 5c clean TR

Did this as a third, so effectively on a top rope and didn't fancy the swing if I came off on the arete so by passed this part by using Blurter (after the traverse).
