Rockfax Description
A popular outing that shed a hold on its crux, but can still be climbed at grade 5 if a move right is made at the third bolt (6a+ if taken direct). Start up the arete, then make a tricky move into the corner which is followed to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: Since the loss of the hold, it remains F5 if you step left at the third bolt, move up and step back right. Going direct is now about F6a+.

βeta: I agree, an enjoyable climb but one of the LO bolts looks a little suspect.
