Rockfax Description
The central arete gives a fine route, climbed on its left-hand side throughout. A distant side-runner is often used at E5, though the upper section remains bold. © Rockfax

FA. Terry Hirst (with side-runner) 1978. FA. Simon Jones (solo) 1992.

βeta: Very very soft for E6. The low gear is bomber - friend 1.5 and medium sized wire - and definitely protects the crux. It's also on route, not "distant side runners" as in the description. I was having a bad day and slipped from the good hold on the arete before the big break and after the crux, and still didn't hit the ground. Its definitely a full three star route though and is probably easily onsightable as its obvious how to do it when you get there. Video here if you want to ruin your onsight: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8tdESQEihCw Cheers, Si.
