Rockfax Description
The right-hand arete is an intimidating outing offering sustain and poorly protected climbing. There may be two, or even three old pegs in place, though these should not be trusted. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Undoubtedly the centrepeice of the quarry and one of the finest arete on gritstone. Ascend the striking right arete of the front face of the red prow, starting on the right. The continue past two pegs of dubious worth, to a thrilling finish on sloping holds.
