Rockfax Description
The soaring arete is the classic hard route of the crag. Relatively easy climbing up the groove in the lower arete (micro-wires), and a worrying move right along the break, gain some much needed gear (cams). Back at the arete, make a desperate move to reach a thin crack on the left (crucial small wire, very hard to place) and sprint up the rest of the arete. Please don't stand on the pebble as there is only half of it left now! Three ropes are normally used to protect the line. © Rockfax
