Rockfax Description
A super route. A long pitch finishing up a flying arete. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
One of the longer clip-ups on sandstone and at a reasonable grade. Start just right of the centre of the slab. Follow the obvious bolted line moving left to avoid the brambles to finish up the newly installed lower chain belay on the wall right of the arete of Fatal Reflection.

Roy Thomas 1995.

βeta: Absolute garbage route. Section of the wall is more mud than rock, have to climb through a bramble bush at one point, if you do the 6b version the bolts at the top are spaced so that you will fall into a big tree, and a few loose rocks came off to top it off. A couple of good moves of climbing but not worth it

βeta: Maybe 6b+ bearing in mind the bouldery start over the starting strip roof.

βeta: SWCW suggests the route finishes around the corner and up the left hand face of the arete (ignoring the obvious bolt on the right hand face). This is a quite a bold finish but much easier than the direct finish which I found unclimbable at 6a+
