The left side of Arhi is one of its most popular sectors and with good reason. Although baking hot in the warmer months it is a good venue for colder months. The left side of the cliff has a great array of climbs across the grades with many long pitches.

An excellent long (35m) and sustained pitch through some unlikely terrain. Not too hard for the grade, but it goes on a bit!
