Rockfax Description
The arete is delicate and quite low in the grade. A semi-crucial Friend in the rather shallow slot gets in the way a little, though another out right (and off route?) doesn't! © Rockfax

βeta: Nope. That would be Three Pebble Slab - hence the downgrade. :p Is Hobson Moor even in the Peak District?

βeta: Any gear in the slot would be way off route. I struggled to get a "good" friend in the pocket (and I tried lots of different sizes!), not sure if what I got would have held a fall. Got reasonably good small wires in the crack. Nice route, but bold.

βeta: Quite easy if you know how but still fairly cool. Height makes no difference whatsoever in my opinion. Couple o microwires lower down is fun and friend in the pocket if you need.

βeta: the friend placement seems solid so dont miss it and will probably be the only gear as the next move or two are the crux and the only hard(ish) section

βeta: the friend placement in the pocket makes the route much more interesting and bold, great rush stepping up without the pocket

βeta: A wire before the pocket and a friend in the right-hand slot (which can be easily reached from the left hand placement) reduce this to a less bold HVS.

βeta: You can get a good small friend in a slot (somewhat off route) on the right before the crux.
