Rockfax Description
The intimidating wall right of the arete is taken centrally by this much lauded top-end VS. Start right of the arete below an orange stain where a block has fallen out. Climb to the niche under an overhang and move right to a slim corner. Move up and then right to another slim corner that is below a thin crack in the upper wall - possible belay. Follow the technical crack to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: I must say I have some sympathy for those who say this should be HVS 5a. The crux move on pitch two is hard and committing and I didn't think there was good gear at that point. But I suppose something has to be the hardest VS in the area....
