Rockfax Description
A wonderful adventure spiralling across some impressive terrain with tremendous exposure on P1. Not a good route for complete novices to second.
1) 20m. From the base of the sloping ledge under Cenotaph Corner, climb polished flakes up and then leftwards until an airy step down (small threads to protect the second) reaches a ledge on the arete. From here move left and up to reach the ledge known as The Forest - usually a congested belay stance.
2) 22m. Climb up left to the steep crack. Pull up this to a ledge and climb the easier slab on the left to a sloping belay ledge.
3) 25m. The wide crack gives access to an easy slab. Walk along this and ascend a large groove on the right to finish. © Rockfax

βeta: P1 and P2 are pretty exposed. Wouldn't choose as a first VD lead

βeta: Somewhat exposed. Perhaps a tad absolutely terrifying.
