Well worth seeking out for the interesting geology. There is also a direct start, up the wall right of the arete, at about 7a.

Well the thread's looking nice and pale through UV degradation already... makes things feel scary on the onsight unil you've clipped the next bolt, since if the thread fails you'd probably be on the ground. Top route though.

this was superb. short but it packs a lot in. for a sport route it felt very memorable. guess it was the added spice of being pretty bold. 2 threads in when i did it. both looked ok but wouldnt have wanted to test em.

I stick-clipped the first bolt, but then got gripped above the two threads which looked very sun-bleached and if they broke might land you with a ground fall. Good climbing though.

Recently re-bolted so no more epics!

Probably climbed this more times than any other route in Wallsend, never get bored, good variety of climbing. The direct is fun and slappy as well.
