Rockfax Description
A short power problem up the right-hand arete popping for a big thread on the upper break. The grade is height dependent. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The blunt right arete. The tall will find this a very soft touch while the short will find it virtually impossible. Quite delicate and powerful at the same time. Either traverse left or finish up the left hand side of the overhangs above the ledge - this doesn't change the grade.

M Boysen 1970s.
