From the tip of the slab, make a hard friction move to start and then just go. Unprotected but a belayer on the left is sensible! © Rockfax

βeta: i agree completly with the last comments. no way anything more than e1. 5c is the first moves (safe) then the rest of the route is e1 5a, which shows a dangeous position. just needs explaining in the desciption. thought 2 stars, great buzz without being too hard

βeta: Dangerously undergraded at E1, there is no easy escape once on the arete. diud strangler the same day and found this just as scary. E2 at least.
