Rockfax Description
The fine delicate arete is not over endowed with gear and requires commitment and neat footwork. Start on the left, move onto the front face (wires) then press on and stay cool. © Rockfax

βeta: First move up the arete is the crux, but the exposure above keeps you on your toes. Much harder than Bengal Buttress.
