Rockfax Description
The fine arete has a chequered history. Originally done as a trad route climbed on either side, it is now usually done on the right because of the bolts. Loss of holds has made it harder. Another line to the right has been claimed but is a pointless eliminate. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Called the Whinger elsewhere but it is a retro-bolt of a trad route called Greedor.

FA. Dave Williams, Geoff Middlehurst 2002.

βeta: The right-hand side of the arete is now really hard at around 6b+. The left-hand side of the arete was given E2 5c and may still be that but the bolts can be clipped although they are in totally the wrong place. To make it worse there is the stupid Off Limits route which really should exist. A right bloody mess to be honest.

βeta: No bolts until you’ve stood up on the shelf, bolted well after that but anchor requires maintenance

βeta: Lower easier part has no fixed protection until after the shelf well bolted after that but anchor is questionable
