Rockfax Description
The seam left of the arete gives superb steep wall climbing, although the gear (small wires) is a little spaced. One for a steady leader but not really too hard for E1. © Rockfax

βeta: Very good, looks like a bit of a bully from the ground, but it backs down somewhat when fronted up to, the gear is spaced though and true safety comes at around the 3rd piece.

βeta: this really is E1. Why it has been downgraded is beyond me. There are starred E2s in the lancs quarries which feel as difficult. Although technically quite easy, the gear is not brilliant, lots of it, but the good stuff is well spaced. Requires a cool head for the entire length.

βeta: Gear is thin wires and well spaced. I'd say low end e1.

βeta: Did it yesterday and I thought the gear was bomber personally, was always comfortable placing it and it felt a bit soft touch for E1? :S

βeta: Deffo E1. Not hard technically, but bold, run -out on small wires requiring a cool head.
