Rockfax Description
The fine arete is one of the unsung gems of Froggatt. A tough start leads up flakes then a hard move gains a break and gear. From here pull up to gain and enjoy the rounded finish. Classic. © Rockfax

βeta: 2 bats flew out of the big sidepull/under cut just beneath the roof as I was brushing the holds. Might be wise to leave this route for a while?

βeta: You must be missing something Fiend, spot on at the grade, on both counts. Excellent climbing, each move leads you on to the next.

βeta: Having tried the start (trying to find a way with various cunning moves from the left hand seam to the right hand flake) many over 4 seperate sessions, I am tending to agree with Simon Lee more than Ropeboy... I'm usually able to boulder 6b pretty quickly and flash many 6as (in almost any style, although crimpy side-pull aretes are usually a forte...), so to not find a way to do this after a couple of dozen attempts is quite suspicious.

βeta: The photo is correct. Climb the arete via a series of cunning moves (crux) to good gear and steady climbing to a slopey finish, steady 6a at best, never 6b. The start used to be easier before the demise of the tree that you could bridge off. The old crux being the top out. Yet another Bancroft classic.

βeta: Unsure about the start as the line in the rockfax was ambiguous and the photo severely foreshortened. Opted for reaching across from the right with a siderunner for pro rather than attempt what looked like a highball 6B direct start. Classic climbing thereafter. Well worth checking out in poor conditions.
