59m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The often-occupied low-angled arete of exquisite granite is the best introduction to the easier routes at Bosigran. Start at the base of the arete.
1) 22m. Climb up the steep right-hand side of the arete on generous holds for 5m and then, as the angle eases, step left on to the arete itself and follow it to a stance and spike belay.
2) 18m. Continue up the arete to a terrace and various belays.
3) 19m. Move to the back of the bay and climb steep cracks to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: On the first pitch about 12 feet above the sometimes used spike belay there is an obvious block with a tempting perfect nut slot on its rh side. This block is not part of the crag tested a placement yesterday and it moved the block a fraction. Good smaller wire round to the left. Preserve this block as it makes three good footholds, suspect a lot harder without it.

βeta: Accidentally ran first and second pitches together. Awkward little move at the start of the second pitch and one of the flakes a little loose.

βeta: Unfortunately we left a wallnut halfway up the first pitch. Not terribly interested in getting it back, but would appreciate if someone could get it out. It’s quite unsightly.

βeta: Link first and second pitch. Belay from the edge, not the 'back of the bay', otherwise communication is difficult
