Rockfax Description
Photogenic. The ledge on the arete is gained awkwardly from the right, then make long reaches (5b for the short) to gain better holds higher up the arete. The upper section is more delicate. Escape right across the chimney or through the cave. © Rockfax

βeta: Well I'm 5'6" (on a good day!) and found the long reach very long (fell off once). Finally managed it with a real slap move. Good holds though when you get them....

βeta: I'm 5'7" and I didn't find this particularly difficult. I would have thought it was reasonably soft HVS. There are big holds all the way up and the protection is perfect. Great route.

βeta: I agree, the overhang is tough for the 'vertically challenged'. But after a dozen falls I can testify that the gear placements are bomber just below the crux. May have another go when I'm capable of HVS 5b.
