The archetypal grit arete and one of grit's greatest hard routes. The climbing is technical and ultra committing with good runners at one-third height and the crux at the top. Don't fall off the last move unless you have briefed your second man to leap from the ledge in an attempt to shorten the fall - even then it is pretty much touch and go! © Rockfax
