Rockfax Description
An intimidating and treacherous pitch on compact rock. All of the original pegs are gone and the route is now a very bold and serious proposition. Micro wires are essential. Climb the sustained wall right of the arete to better small holds that lead left to the arete itself and a spike runner. Progress to the overlap above, step up, and move left to the base of a very shallow depression. Sustained climbing past a couple of good small nut placements leads to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A recent fall snapped the last remaining piton, all the runners pulled resulting in a groundfall that the leader was very fortunate to survive. In its present state a grade of E3 orE4 5b is suggested.
