Rockfax Description
An all-time favourite taking the line of least resistance up the long slab, down and right of Northwest Arete. Start a grassy ledge below a large left-facing corner.
1) 15m. Move up the corner for a few metres before striking out on a leftwards line up and across the slab to its edge. Make a delicate move up to a ledge and belay.
2) 30m. Gain another ledge above and take a groove-line on the right to slabs that eventually lead to the finishing ledges. © Rockfax
