Rockfax Description
The magnificent scalloped arete is unprotected where it matters although gear can be fiddled in the half-height bore holes. Not for the faint of heart, because from the crux you will hit the ground, gear or not! © Rockfax

βeta: I don't think you would hit the ground if you placed a runner in the very bottom pocket at starting height to take mose of the slack in if you were to come off. Fantastic line though!!!
