Rockfax Description
A big, committing climb right up the middle of the cliff finishing on the arete of the huge central slab. A very serious climb even when clean and dry. Start just left of the massive rubble heap, below a widening crack.
1) 4c, 20m. Move up over steep grass to the base of the crack. Climb the crack, which is thin to start, to a stance on the left at a large ledge.
2) 4c, 16m. Poor rock. Climb the corner on the left and work back right to a stance on a ledge next to the arete.
3) 5a, 45m. Move right, around the arete, to a vertical crack and take this to its end. Move up the wall above until it is possible to traverse leftwards to the arete. Climb the long slabby edge of the arete with little protection to the top. A serious pitch. © Rockfax
