Rockfax Description
A superb and committing arete with the crux, and some rather battered protection close to the top. Often done above pads at a scary f6A+. © Rockfax

βeta: An intense experience for your average E2/3 leader... The rock is great, the holds satisfying, and the finish particularly nice. The gear however, is somewhat sub-optimal, although a varied and careful selection would hold a fall. The grade (sans mats) - E4 5d of course.

βeta: Odd That! As you rely totally on your seemingly endless supply of brute strength. Nice1

βeta: I think it's E5 for the onsight solo but E4 if you lead it and afterall, this should be the grade it gets. Topping out isn't 'that' much easier than the rockover.

βeta: Quite easy if u are tall, the span 2 the arete is the hardest move! did it solo with no mat, and considering the possible bollock castrating landing on the block, i think its worth E5!

βeta: The move going from the left crimp to the crimp below the break is really quite hard for the small... fantastic route tho!

βeta: I trundled up to the break expecting gear, armed with a friend 0 and 00, only to find sweet FA. So I trundled back down... Since then I've been told that you can get a decent RP in, but this is pretty hard unless its pre-placed. Worth low E5 for an onsight solo with no pads IMO.
