Rockfax Description
The eye-catching arete is short but immaculate. Most finish on the left at the top but the right-hand side also goes, although it is a bit tougher. A direct start is 7a. © Rockfax

βeta: Base of the climb has been affected by the rockfall. The climb is unchanged - the top need to be approached with caution with more rockfall potential from the ledges.

βeta: Tricky to grade accurately...going left at the top feels easier than 6c+, going right feels nearer 7a!

βeta: Excellent technical climbing. Another vote to go right at the top, harder but a more satisfying sequence.
