Exposed and committing climbing up the wall's right-hand arete. Start just to the left of the arete. Make a tricky series of moves over the low overhang and then climb rightwards up the wall to meet the upper arete. Make committing moves up the arete to an easier finish.</br>FA Martin Crocker 13.8.89. FA (with long direct start) Pete Oxley 14.10.95

"Very exposed" is a slight exageration

A stick clip is nice for the first bolt. I broke a big jug off the lower arete and then pathetically wimped out of the crux.

This is a wonderful route, as many others in the crag. The roof move at the start can be harder for shorties. Very elegant and esthetic move on the crux.

A great route and not too hard to on-sight. The start is entertaining and quite powerful, the the next half is fairly easy (3 good rests) and the arete is sheer quality. Loved it.
