Rockfax Description
An amazing route - a tough E5 or easy E6, you decide! Start just below and left of the high flying-arete that makes the dramatic climax of this route. Move up and left to a ledge and take the hanging flake on the right up the steep wall. Enter the groove above, climb past a thread and continue on to a small niche. Bridge up the groove above (peg) to a short respite before swinging right onto the arete in an outrageous position. Engage turbo thruster and head up the arete, passing a peg, to a final dramatic move at the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start up the detached flake, past a thread, continue into a shallow niche. Unobvious moves lead to a peg then a good rest ledge. From here move out onto the arete (peg) and beast it to the top.

βeta: In situ lower off (shared with Roc Ness Monster) - peg and a wire. Consider adding extra gear if you feel it's necessary... Added a long piece of tat 8.7.19 - the idea is to be able to re-equalise it to ab down / belay either Roc Ness or King Wad. Didn't have a knife handy to cut out the old tat.

βeta: First go fell off reversing from the peg (to whoever told me to do this: you are wrong and I will never forgive you). Hard wild moves up the arete with a big throw to finish, although there is apparently an easier way to do it.
