Rockfax Description
The massive arete is simply stunning. Start below the arete and climb it to a crack on the left which leads to a break. Swing left then pull up with difficulty to gain some breaks. Continue above to another break, step right along it then pull up to a large flake. Move right and climb the arete, past 2 pegs, to a break. Make more hard moves to another break, and peg. Step left and move up then back right to finish. © Rockfax
