The elegant arete is superb but slightly harder for shorties. Make a tricky start to reach the first break then tackle the arete above by some hard laybacking. Cams in the second break may permit a long scraping fall to be taken. The last reach will remain in your memory for a long time! Said to be low in the grade. © Rockfax
