A bold but exhilarating pitch up the stunning arete. Start at a huge pine tree next to the arete, as for Behind the Lines. Move right up the slab to gain the arete and follow it to below an overhang. Moves right (bolt) and up past it to reach the wall above. Head left to gain and climb the left side of the arete to the top. The tree on the right is used for protection and the upper section of arete can be protected with an RP. © Rockfax
UKC Logbook Description
A beautiful route requiring a bold but graceful approach to climb the smooth arête right of Behind the Lines.
Start at the pine tree, as for Behind the Lines.
(5c). Climb the slab on the right to a rib and follow it to the overhang. Step right, past a poor peg, (new glue in bolt) and
pull directly through the overhang on good, but widely spaced holds, to land on the slab above. Traverse
back left, just above the roof to reach the main arête. Climb the left side of this, passing a good diagonal
crack, to a tree on its right flank. Step back onto the arête and climb it with conviction, past a thin R.P.
crack on the left, to a delicate and gripping finish.
