30m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A daunting Himalayan peak - or a worthwhile Hen Cloud outing?
1) 4a, 12m. Climb the short steep groove to a stance.
2) 4b, 18m. Starting the steep and slippery crack behind the ledge is tricky, it leads to the easy upper ridge of The Arete. © Rockfax

FA. Arthur Burns 1927.

βeta: A very good climb, severe 4b is bang on for the difficulty, much easier than modern round the corner!!
