Rockfax Description
8m. Teeter out right then sprint up the easier rib; short but airy. Traditionally a tricky HVS. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A good route typical of the crag, pebbly, pocketed and bold. A tricksome start on the left wall of the arete leads to a middle section moving on to the otherside of the arete succumbing to a tactical approach, finishing with juggy and airy climbing.

βeta: Wasn't this HVS 5a in the old gritstone guide? A case of grade creep, even with it being commonly climbed with pads now.
