UKC

Rockfax Description
A hard route with a steep start and a great second pitch.
1) 5b, 12m. Climbing up to the shattered overhanging groove. Pulling around to the belay is much more problematic than it first appears and may well shatter some leader's nerves.
2) 5c, 30m. Move right and climb the superb technical wall via a thin crack to an overlap. Pull around this and then head up right to a ledge near the arete. Committing moves up a crack lead back left through a bulge to easier ground above. Continue more easily to the large flake stance of Spectre.
3) and 4) As for Spectre. © Rockfax

βeta: Abseil tat is looking tired. Maybe bring some old rope along to refresh it since the crux can be hard to clean on second and is difficult to abseil into from any of the other ab points.
