Rockfax Description
Climb right of the arete to the ledge of Right-hand Tower. The original finish is left of the nose using a small flake (E2 5c) but topping out as for Right-hand Tower is more in keeping. © Rockfax

βeta: The description is a bit bollox really. This clearly climbs the right hand side of the arete up an obvious direct line. Lots of good gear from all sorts of cams, moves are a bit bland though apart from the finish.

βeta: you can finish on the arete and avoid the original 5c E2 finish and the finish of Right hand tower and get an award for splitting hairs!

βeta: The finish as given in the ROCKFAX topo (on the left of the arete) is nails - 5c crimps followed by a tricky mantelshelf, well above your gear. Probably only E1 5b if you finish direct, on the right of the arete.

βeta: Not a well protected start from a good break and pocket (where are the other pockets??). Great slopey fun - take some big cams!
