Rockfax Description
A real classic and rite of passage which is hard work but well protected. Climb the short arete to runners, then lean out (large wire in the flake) and layback onto the flake. About face, and finish briskly. © Rockfax

βeta: I thought 6b, although admitedly don't have a lot of experience at flashing this grade. I'm quite short though and could only get two fingers on the bottom of the flake from the side-pull, so maybe the discrepancy in opinions in the grade is an arm span thing.

βeta: E5,6a for sure. Technically its not that bad, you just need to spend a little bit of time using your feet and thinking your way up it..

βeta: Don't remember a 6b move on this at all. The flake is strenuous but 'only' 6a.
