A snaking line with exposed positions and steep climbing. Start 2m right of the base of the arete. Powerful moves on slopers, past a bolt, lead to an overhung niche on the arete. Pull directly out of the niche and climb past another bolt to beneath more steep ground. Traverse left to a spike on the arete. Continue up the arete before making a fingery move left to positive holds and a lower-off just above. Additional bolts can be clipped on neighbouring sport pitches. © Rockfax
