Rockfax Description
A classic trip at a more amenable grade; the upper roofs provide delicious, juggy entertainment. Climb the right wall of the arete, move back to the arete, and up to a good ledge on the left. Power rightwards through the roofs above, to a wide crack up on the left; follow this to finish through the well-positioned top roof. (S3, F6a) © Rockfax
