Climb the arete on its right-hand side, until level with the base of The Blurter groove. Swing left around the arete and sprint to a large ledge, taking care with a loose block. Finish direct up steep rock. Other variations on the arete section are inferior.
FA. Jon de Montjoye 1976. Long credited to the 2nd man by mistake.


watch out for the teetering TV sized block on the ledge above the crux. (great route otherwise though!)

Not much pro low down. Careful!

Lower section is poorly protected and quite tricky..The lay back and crux is taxing but excellent once its sussed. At the time the next section going direct was made harder due to the fact it is very green and slippery. Yes the TV sized block! It was a surprise as I hadn't read these comments and jamming under it wasn't advisable!!! as it moves very easily. Hard work and a bit contrived but worth the effort. Nice to find something that not everyone is doing.

Failed on this due to my own weakness but was on it long enough to realise it's a rubbish eliminate in the "line of most resistance" mould that should go direct up the easier, purer and obvious line of the right hand side of the arete direct.

I did it on the right of the arete up to where it steepens (only 1 poor cam for gear), the swung around the arete, got a wire in and then went up the layback. Worth a star and E2 5c, although the 5c is protected, there is bold climbing too.
