A great route with two testing pitches and a magnificent 'pat-on-the-back' finishing arete.</br>1) 5c, 20m. Climb the corner, which is hard at first but eases above, to a small roof. Swing right to a wide crack which leads to the ledge.</br>2) 5c, 25m. Climb the left-hand of two blank corners to another ledge (small microwires useful). Swing like an ape up the steep crack in the left-hand side of the arete to the top.
With 'cunning' the initial corner isn't all that blank, and a hybrid collection of gear protects. The initial corner on p2 can (as an alternative) be climbed up the left arete.
A great first pitch which takes a bit of effort to protect but is safe. Second pitch is in a good position but eases off high up.
The ledge at the top of the 'blank corner' of P2 is decaying and has been known to break off in large chunks...take care.
