Rockfax Description
Layback the lower arete precariously on its left-hand side to a ledge on the right. Teeter up to better holds (the crux for shorties) and a romp to the top. Easier for the tall. © Rockfax

βeta: I'm 5"11 and found the crux ok, more commitment to standing on the decent smears rather than a long reach! Top half is great, awesome moves and fairly run out!

βeta: Bottom arete is definitely the crux - no harder than average 6b. Did it just after soloing The Knock which made the The Knock feel vvvvv easy.
