<< Piton Route < Sinister | The Arete > Pink Wall Direct >>
A worthwhile and pulse enhancing route making the most of the slabby wall left of The Arete. Start 2m left of The Arete.</br>1) 25m. Climb up and diagonally left without much gear to a gap in the bushes. Move left across and up a slab to a tree belay below a wide rounded runnel. </br>2) 4b, 26m. Take the smooth wide runnel onto the open smooth slab. Move up a thin, fading crack to its end and then up the bold slab to an easing. Continue up the steadier slab above to Lunchtime Ledge.
