Exhilarating positions and intense climbing combine to give one of Langdale's finest E3s. Start as for Arcturus.
1) 5b, 33m. Follow Arcturus to the foothold on the main slab. Move up right to gain and climb a shallow groove-line that leads to an overhung horizontal break. Go right to reach a belay under the overhang.
2) 5c, 25m. Go back left under the roof then head back right, pulling over onto the headwall above the roof - committing. Move up to a peg and then, a little higher, head right out to the rib and a block. Move up once again before heading leftwards to a small overlap and crack above. Climb the crack to a ledge and belay shared with Arcturus.
3) 5a, 12m. Traverse left and pull over the curving slim overhang to gain and climb a corner to a ledge. Move right and up to another ledge to finish. © Rockfax
UKC Logbook Description
The third and hardest mega-classic on this part of the crag. Climbs the wall and slab of Arcturus before breaking out rightwards to tackle the impressive hanging rib via sustained wall climbing, initially quite serious.
