10m. A fine test-piece from the Nadin era of the mid 1980s. Roll into the slot below the fin of Clippity Clop... (very large Friend). Use the fin above to get established on the left-hand wall, from where a committing slap for the sloping top and some extreme scrabbling might just ensure victory. Photo page 90.
You don't really climb the arete, you start on it and then continue up the wall to the left.
Over-shadowed now by Clipperty-Clop..., which is the main event here. Not very hard (6b?), but reachy and scrabbly near the top - yuk.
originally finished direct on pebbles above the good hold in sidewall and desperate,possibly e8 this way,but the way down now only easy e7 6b
i thought e6-6b
I'm pretty sure Simon soloed the FA - pretty direct and no gear or mats to ease things. My brother has the first ascent pics somewhere. Gear and mats up the wall may well knock it down to E6!
gear and mats you lads are getting soft
Soft, and Nads probably was wearing EBs at the time. Still he needs a wheelbarrow for his Cojones
