The arete is usually approached from its right-hand side and is tricky at the roof. It can also be started from Solitaire.

very well protected by the peg, but the extreme polish could cause some excitement.

An interesting a worthwhile route, despite it being a two move wonder really. I didn't think the polish was too bad (for Stoney!), and the peg is rather pointless given the good nut placement directly underneath it.

Instead of tackling the upper section direct, the line in the guide moves around the upper corner and back - They require a bit of a reach, but are well worth doing. Slightly easy for the grade, none-the-less.

Same comment as Alun - Why the peg? Any way it can be removed?

my first lead and second route at stoney. tricky to get established up on the arete. here there is a perfect slot for a size 2 rock just left of the arete. bit of a 'hop an a skip' up from here - good move to easy ground. This route is SAFE. I know its stoney but really no reason to toprope this climb.

Short-lived but pleasant with some fun moves. Probably 5b, it's more committing than actually hard.

The wire below the peg is now crap as the block to the left is loose, there is a good wire above the peg, but the peg is probably holding this block in place, so it's might not be that good.

Approach on right side is 5B, from left is 5B. Good gear under roof. Intersting enjoyable climbing and probably the easiest E1 at Stoney.
