Rockfax Description
'Satisfaction' in Japanese - the wall left of the arete is superb, popular, polished and usually occupied. Move up to the break below and right of the cave. Traverse this rightwards until it is possible to pull up left into a groove. Move back slightly right to another groove then make a tricky move up left to gain good holds. Follow the wall above on some amazing juggy rock, keeping left of the finishing corner. © Rockfax

βeta: I too was underwhelmed by this one - if it ended about half way between the platform and the top, it'd be perfect. The slight confusion in the line, along with the strenuous but un-difficult nature of the upper section, just takes away from the overall route - i.e. at the ledge I loved this climb, by the top I was swearing at it!

βeta: Agree with the above, sustained interest but never particularly hard, lots of stonking gear too, only real problem is route-finding and choice of routes all the way up. I thought 3 star E1, definately more interest than The Arrow for instance.....

βeta: I was slightly underwhelmed by this 'classic' E1, and I don't feel it has a strong enough line, or a good enough position, to warrant three stars. The climbing is continually interesting right until the end though, which redeems it somewhat.

βeta: Watch your ropes getting jammed in a little clamp on the face. Best to clip both ropes lower down to avoid this

βeta: Easier if you bear left a little at half height, more pumpy if go head straight up the corner.

βeta: Steady, not hard, unless you're used to gritstone length routes, when you'll pump out just as you get to the jugs...

βeta: Great route indeed. Some of the jugs at the top are so big you can get your whole arm behind them. Great if you're pumped to death.
