Rockfax Description
Fine wall-climbing that requires some care with route finding. Start just right of the crystal crack of Suspension Bridge Arete.
Follow the crack-system just right of the starting crack of Suspension Bridge Arete to the horizontal break at 10m. Climb up right to a steep pocket line and follow this with difficulty, to a point level with a small overhang just down and right of the hole on Suspense. Move up right to stand on a good hold and climb thin cracks up the wall to a break. Climb the pocketed crack above to a traverse line that leads up leftwards to the abseil post. © Rockfax

βeta: Often given ‘high in the grade’ but I thought the grade fair. Easier than Limbo. Sometimes tricky route-finding to keep clear of adjacent routes.
