The arete that forms the edge of the bay was once cutting edge and it remains quite superb. Amigos in pockets protect.

Awesome a mini masters edge and if you dont have the required gear, then its a superb adrenalin pumping E5, THE line of pex

proper class. Solo is the only way and worth every bit of E5

This was always a highly rated solo with few takers. Has it actually been led with amigos? Wouldn't they block off the (few) holds?

A totally awesome solo. Suppose you could faff about with tri cams or whatever in the 2 pockets but then the crux at the top just wouldn't be the same....Outstanding line!

Don't bother with the gear, solo it for the full value experience. Well worth E5, make Peak E5's (The Knock, Froggat slab routes) look like a path.
