Rockfax Description
A bit aimless but pleasant and with only one tricky move. Follow Bishop's Route to the ledge then step out right and climb the well-positioned flake crack in the arete to a fine finish on flutings. © Rockfax

βeta: Climbed this on saturday - way too cold for climbing but what can you do. Going straight up from the first ledge is definately the way to go. Looks harder than it actually is and is certainly the only section of the climb that gives it the VS grade.

βeta: Which ledge? Is it the one with the holly on, or the one above that? Going by the old definitive guide it's the latter, and you step right into the crack. In which case I can't see why this gets VS 4b, it felt more like Severe to me, HS 4b at most (well protected and not sustained). Conversely, if you are supposed to access the crack direct from the first ledge, it's much harder than the grade!
