The striking arete is as good as it looks. Protection from small wires is ample and the climbing is technical and sustained. Start up the slope just right of the arete.1) 5b, 21m. Move leftwards up the wall to the arete and climb its right-hand side for 9m. Make a perplexing few moves up and then left to an easing at a whitish scoop, good small wires. Move right and make a stiff pull to undercuts and a peg above. Easier climbing finishes at a ledge and bolt belay.2) 11m. Climb easy ground to the top. © Rockfax
