Rockfax Description
16m. Start up Absent Friend (originally an easier start from the right was used) but traverse the upper break to the arete (thread). Climb it on the left then on the right to a break, runners and then easier climbing. The brilliant Direct Start - E8 7a follows shelving rock then pinch-grips the arete to reach the thread on the original. © Rockfax
