Rockfax Description
An intimidating pitch on compact rock. The gear is spaced and only just adequate. Take plenty of small wires. Start on a raised ledge just right of the arete.
Climb the sustained wall right of the arete to better small holds that lead left to the arete itself and a spike runner. Progress to the overlap above, step up, and move left, past a peg, to the base of a very shallow depression. Sustained climbing past a couple of good small nut placements gains another peg. Pass this on the right and push on to the top not far above. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A recent fall snapped the last remaining piton, all the runners pulled resulting in a groundfall that the leader was very fortunate to survive. In its present state a grade of E3 orE4 5b is suggested.
