The delicate slabby arete, or the face just left, leads to a ledge. Access the flake and a dramatic finish that will find you swinging by the gargoyles. Variations are inferior. Photographed a thousand times, almost aways from the cliff top to the right with the reservoir in the background.
The initial arete is quite tricky and serious if tackled head on.
The initial arete is all you'd expect from a VS 4c and there is a nice 5a variation start on a juggy rib a metre right for those who prefer a harder test.
the arete is a bit sparse protection-wise but not bad climbing. getting established on the flake is definiteyl the crux and feels quite committing
Totally enjoyable climbing with an excellent layback in the middle...just comes to end all too quickly.
Superb fun. A bit awkward low down, but soon the massive holds just keep on coming
Ace route. The start felt like the crux and putting gear behind the big flake is awkward but once it's in you can just enjoy the romp up the rest of the line.
great postion on the gargoyle ,run it out for full effect !
I did this climb in very strong wind, i didn't like the block low down but found the rest of the climb excellent.
Got psyched up for the overhang at the top only to find it was much easier than it looked.
Didn't bother with any gear on the arete so when it came to getting up under the flake I had an arsetwitch moment and bellyflopped it. That'll learn me. Rest of the route was nice, loved cranking up the flake.
Had to take a moment on the ledge below the layback after the obvious belly flop move!
