Rockfax Description
This pleasant route roughly follows the arete right of First Blood. Climb an open groove on the right-hand side of the arete to a large loose-looking flake. Move up to a ledge on the arete and then climb the arete on its right-hand side, past good but widely spaced gear. From the break move left behind a large pinnacle, step up onto this and climb the corner on the left. © Rockfax

βeta: Wouldn’t recommend as a good first E1, a fall in the groove onto small wires would not be pleasant.

βeta: Very nice. I'd do it again. Just a thinnish bit in the middle.
