A daunting Himalayan classic - then again perhaps not! 1) 4a, 12m. Climb the short steep groove to a stance. 2) 4b, 18m. The steep and slippery crack behind is the crux and leads to the easy upper ridge of The Arete.

Awesome simply awesome. One of the best climbs I have ever had the pleasue of leading. Start of second pitch is a little tricky but amazingly good fun!

A very good climb, severe 4b is bang on for the difficulty, much easier than modern round the corner!!
