Rockfax Description
Sustained and strenuous crack-climbing in an outrageous position. Start at a crack-system 3m left of the seaward arete.
Follow the crack-system to a large ledge and an optional belay. Make a tricky traverse left from the ledge across the face to a long vertical crack. Follow the widening crack all the way to the top taking care with a couple of rickety holds. © Rockfax

βeta: The traverse was a little techy for me but save for that really cool climbing and how cool is that cut channel between north and baby fin? Extraordinary geology. Never will forget
