The arete is a classic boulder problem. The left-hand side is also 6b but worth V5. May just be the shortest three star route in the Peak! It has also been done one-handed, at V8!

This kicks arse. All you need are some guts to swing around the arete when you get high up. And falling from the top move has been tested by me, and it doesn't hurt.

I didn't know you fell from the top. Was that when I was there?

Yeah, I had the top hold and my feet slipped. You were on the Mall at the time.

If you flash it I`d take me hat off to ya. Otherwise its easy and steady working followed by `all systems go` at the eventual end.

Terrific problem - yes, falling off the top doesn't hurt, and I'm glad to hear someone else enjoying the topout. The LH side is much harder, mainly due to needing finger strength as opposed to open-hand strength for the RH version.

I fell from the top move and landed on my mat. I thought it did hurt and was glad I had my mat there. Good problem though.
