Rockfax Description
A stunning arete. The climbing is reasonably sustained for 6a, but the E5 grade is about right, as there is a thin crack on the left of the arete that keeps providing protection. A wild move on the small ledge on the right side of the arete provides a half-time break followed by a few heart-in-mouth moves up the arete to reach the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
This clean-cut arete with a hairline crack running up the left side is an instant classic. The route feels sustained but the tech grade is a soft for 6b or easy for 6a.
