Rockfax Description
The impressive and well-named blowy arete has low gear (small wires) and mostly good holds. It proves to be bold and airy with some suspect rock. © Rockfax

βeta: Good route for E2 - just watch on top moves for pulling rock off.

βeta: Having been 'persuaded' by Al to lead this I have to agree it's worhwhile. Possible candidate for two stars even though the last two feet of rock at that top is friable/loose in that worrying Millstone manner (good gear below though).
