Rockfax Description
Great climbing on a finely sculptured line. Start at a thin crack just to the left of the base of the arete.
Move up the crack and pull up right into another that ends at a break below an overhang. Layback up the steep rounded flakes above to an easing and continue to beneath the large overhang. Traverse right and pull over on good holds and finish up the short wall. © Rockfax
