Rockfax Description
The blunt arete has a slippery start then climb the slab trending rightwards, a good test of footwork, to better holds, the odd tiny runner and a brisk mantelshelf finish. Stake belay. © Rockfax

βeta: I agree with Joe C. I got two opposing Rock 1's at the first break. Perhaps just a bit better than psycological. Hardest moves were reaching the first break and leaving it.

βeta: Small wires in the break didn't block the handholds for me and I thought the crux was lower down near the bullet-mark things. Sweet as a nut!

βeta: One of my favourite E1s - I onsight soloed it with no-one else around. Gear at the crux would probably get in the way of handholds. It feels really exposed but the sequence (no doubt it varies depending on your height) is easy to follow as the quarried holds are small but obvious.

βeta: I soloed this. Fantastic route with the crux quite high and very committing. It did look possible to place very small gear but you might lose hand holds. If you've got thin fingers some of the holds will feel like jusgs.
