Rockfax Description
Airy climbing and an eye-catching line that takes on the leaning 'feathered' arete to the left of Raven Gully. Start in an overhung corner directly under the arete.
Pull up steeply into the corner using a hollow flake. Make a spectacular move left around the leaning arete, past a spike-runner, to easier-angled ground on the face. Pleasant climbing up the wall and breaks just left of the arete gains a large ledge. Move left from here and climb the slabby wall to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: LOL I did this climb about 5 years ago !!! It's a one move wonder with a sling on a good spike above your head.

βeta: Maybe (and this is just a crazy theory), he's climbed other routes at a lower grade, and this didn't seem any/much harder than them? I saw somebody make the move round onto the arete look very hard the other week.

βeta: my first VS, quite easy at the grade I thought, not sure why it's not a HS really.
