Rockfax Description
The wide, open groove has excellent protection and great moves - never desperate but always steep. Use the ledges on the right arete higher up and finish up the slippery cracks left of the roof to a good block belay. © Rockfax

βeta: Loose block 2/3+ of way up as you swing onto the arete. Size of a football and would otherwise be a perfect foothold. Be careful.

βeta: Not sure if I took the right route near the top as the topo shows the line leading to the right finishing at a block belay, but I followed chalked holds directly up to a tree belay a little further back. Didn't feel hard and was a logical way to the top.
