Rockfax Description
Start up the outer arete and mantel awkwardly onto a ledge. Step left and mantel over a bulge onto a sloping shelf. Step right and mantel (again!) past an undercut crack. Finish easily right. © Rockfax

βeta: Oodles of gear, and the difficulties, such as they were, were all over in the blink of an eye. Good fun, with excellent positions, but three stars is not justified. HS 4c, one (well-deserved) star. Left me wishing I'd done the Shylock Finish.

βeta: Hard Severe and lots of it. Good gear and a lot of good rests between the tricky bits. What's VS about it?

βeta: simon you 2nd' it ! I think VS 4c is correct (i thnk the implication is it used to be undergraded) and the crux is the last, ie i agree with the desc.

βeta: I thought the mantels were easy 4c, 4a, and 4b. All well-protected, maybe HS 4c overall.
