A tour-de-force for its time that combines great atmosphere and rock with clever route finding.
1) 5c, 18m. Move right to a slab and up to a thin crack in the wall above. Go round the arete on the right onto a wall then up to a flake and gear on the right. Now move up left to less steep ground, before moving up right to a thin crack. Locate a hold that allows a couple of moves right to be made to reach a stance and belay below a long corner.
2) 5a, 30m. Climb the slab and corner - another fine pitch. © Rockfax
UKC Logbook Description
Another superb classic taking the exposed grooved arete above Hobson's Choice on perfect rock by way of some varied and absorbing climbing. A must do.
