Hop onto the undercut arete with great difficulty and then layback to easier ground. Unprotected.

Don't believe Derrick when he tells you "from the big 'old on the arete it's about 5a youth" Lying git! Once a contender for the hardest route in the peak I believe. Nice one Bolge

Overall this felt easier and safer than Demon Rib for me. One pad and a good spotter (sensible, but I agree it lowers it to E4ish) and you can fall off as much as you like before the jug, from which its about... er.... easy 5b.
