Rockfax Description
14m. Superbly positioned climbing up the centre of the face then out to the dramatic, hanging right-hand arete. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start up the left hand end of the left face of the huge prow. Use a pocket to pull onto the face, then follow the obvious traverse (via a rather polished smear - crux) line to finish on big holds up the arete. Do it slowly to appreciate the exposure! 14m [P2]

βeta: Good climb, but the second may want to be the more experienced of the pair, as you've got to take the gear out before the traverse - making a large pendulum. A second rope and someone attached to the top of the gulley, is probably recommended for the second.
