<< Silhouette Arete < The Fin | Sun Streets > Snowdrop >>
A similar experience to The Fin but a little safer to start. The first pitch is superb but the second is dirty.
1) 6a, 15m. Climb a crack right of The Fin and continue up a steep wall to the roof. Head diagonally right across the wild roof crack to another easier crack above that leads to the fault-line. Belay on the left.
2) 5b, 18m. Climb a corner on the right then traverse right to the arete. Follow this over a roof then move left into a corner. Climb back right up the arete to the top.

The first pitch is superb, but why mention pegs that are over 20 years old ? The second pitch is dirty and loose!!

Brian Tilley (RIP) is right, the first pitch is brilliant but, the pegs on both this route and The Fin are way past it and should not be trusted. No change in grade though.
