The north-facing wall is climbed by a trio of tricky mantelshelves.


Also reachy.

It starts at the right end of the wall, not the centre, then moves left higher up. And there are 3 mantelshelves not two! The last one's much harder if you're short and can't reach the top.

Anyone any ideas what grade the right hand arete is? It's not in any of the guidebooks, but always seems to have chalk on it. I'd guess at VS but am too scared to try it without knowing!

Agreed the last mantelshelf is overhanging and mean with a deck out likely if you roll off. probably impossible if you can't reach the top from the ledge, Jump!?

Undergraded for sure. Just ask the @sshole who decided to try showing off and solo it while I was setting up a belay after leading it, and then had to tie onto my rope to be rescued.

Lol he must be poor. Quite reachy.
