Rockfax Description
Take the right arete of the central blocky recess and the thin crack directly above it on holds that are generally disappointing. © Rockfax

βeta: This route is deceptively steep! Looking at it from below it almost looks slabby (think I must need new contact lenses), but looking from the side reveals its true angle. I agree with Chris that it's pretty tiring, and the holds aren't as good as they look, my topout was a beached whale impression! It's a nice challenge though, and worthy of the star.

βeta: Felt more like 5b first time around, and whilst there's plenty of gear, it's very tiring to place. Very demoralising - every time you think you're going to get a rest you find the holds are even worse than below.

βeta: A nice gem with some interesting moves- nice crux at the top with laybacking aretes and finger cracks. Perfect Wires throughout.
