A nice easier route up the right Arete.</br>1) 4+, 32m. Climb direct from the lowest point of the buttress with a jig left and right to pass the initial bulges.</br>2) 4, 30m. Continue up the flaky groove following the spaced bolts all the way to the double bolts. Abseil off.


much beter description given here than in 2001 Rockfax - if you don't avoid the bulges it is a hard 4+

Felt a bit sketchy. There are many ways to climb this and whilest the easiest line might be 4+ it is very easy to get onto harder terrain. Nice finish.

The second pitch doesn´t follow a very obvious line - or was I just prone to getting lost that day? Some pretty sketchy climbing and runouts on the second pitch for a grade 4. Lovely view though.
