Rockfax Description
A wild route with great moves on big holds up the steep arete. Start just beyond the far end of the high ledges. Climb the steep buttress starting from the left. Watch out for a loose but avoidable block at the top. A better and more comfortable way of starting the route is to scramble or abseil directly to ledges at sea level. © Rockfax

βeta: Getting to pthe base of this route is pretty simple - just step across the gap and put a couple of wires in the starting crack. Fine route - steep, pumpy and with good gear.

βeta: Getting underneath it from the main ledge is a bit awkward but quite possible. Kind of pumpy. www.dizzy-heights.co.uk
