A fantastic line and with climbing to match. Start just right of the arete.
A great Chudleigh route with only the first few moves polished.
Take lots of small wires (0 - 2), there's more gear than it looks from the ground.
Did second ascent with John Jones and we both found it desperate. When I met Pete Biven later and told him of our epic, He said "you should have done what we did,throw a rope over the bough of the overhanging tree -- that`s why we called it Combined Ops"!
Not easy and not as elegant as it looks. Although the gear is decent and there are some shake-outs, there are a lot of 5b bits on it. Scrodging left into the niche is quite disconcerting, crinkling back right onto the face is considerably nicer.
