Rockfax Description
The striking arete is as good as it looks. Protection from small wires is ample and the climbing is technical and sustained. Start up the slope just right of the arete.
1) 5b, 21m. Move leftwards up the wall to the arete and climb its right-hand side to a peg. Make a perplexing few moves up and then left to an easing at a whitish scoop, good small wires. Move right and make a stiff pull to undercuts and a peg above. Easier climbing finishes at a ledge and bolt belay.
2) 11m. Climb easy ground to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description

βeta: Take lots of small wires (0 - 2), there's more gear than it looks from the ground.
