Rockfax Description
9m. The big rounded arete on the block behind the Dancing Bear. Start on the left. A fall from the final moves would be serious and the route hasn't yet attracted much attention from boulderers. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The desperate rounded arete. Start on the left till a move right gains the arete and a very insecure finish. Could be painful. The first E8 at Brimham.

Nick Dixon, (solo). 1990.
