Rockfax Description
The superb and photogenic Arete. It is probably 6c+ if you climb direct past the second bolt although most folks go right here. © Rockfax

βeta: Be careful with the anchor at the top, the route’s anchor is a single bolt with a locking carabiner that’s heavily rope warn. You’re other choice is another anchor to the left, which really isn’t much better. Two large staples ‘equalised’ by an oval snapgate isn’t confidence filling. From the top I could see a lot of other anchors with a single bolt. Use your judgement.

βeta: Excellent route, but the ring on the top bolt is very worn through.

βeta: Worthy of 3 stars, very nice climb with an amazing view. Starts easy, then gets more technical and slabby, then eases off at the finish.

βeta: I would agree that it's 6b, not 6b+. Certainly a 3 star route, though.

βeta: This route is a really nice 3 star 6b. Its not 6b+ at all. It is however a classic 6b 3 star route and as a result, some people find it harder than a loose nasty 6b, which is not as sustained, etc.

βeta: I loved this route, for me very thin and technical climbing on my own limit, so I would agree with 6b+. The situation is very exposed for a single pitch route, and of course the photos look great with the Penon in the distance!
