Rockfax Description
The first big arete using good holds on its left side. Steep at the start, powerful and unprotected throughout. Very highball f6C+. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climbs the bow-shaped arĂȘte using a series of good holds on its left side that are difficult to see from below. Overhanging to half-height with strangely insecure and powerful moves with no protection above an apalling landing.

βeta: First headpoint project. Probably agree with soft E7/ easy E8 tick although I have nowhere near the credentials to say so positively. Amazing moves on every kind of hold and body position. Loved it.
