The superb and photogenic Arete. It is probably 6c+ if you climb direct past the second bolt although most folks go right here.


Excellent route, slightly harder than other 6b's in the guide, probably worth 6b+.

I loved this route, for me very thin and technical climbing on my own limit, so I would agree with 6b+. The situation is very exposed for a single pitch route, and of course the photos look great with the Penon in the distance!

This route is a really nice 3 star 6b. Its not 6b+ at all. It is however a classic 6b 3 star route and as a result, some people find it harder than a loose nasty 6b, which is not as sustained, etc.

I would agree that it's 6b, not 6b+. Certainly a 3 star route, though.

top route worth 3 stars get someone to take photos you'll find out why when you see the route, there's a better belay 3m on. After that get on Tufa-Groove (route 3) - it's 6b+ & well worth it

Worthy of 3 stars, very nice climb with an amazing view. Starts easy, then gets more technical and slabby, then eases off at the finish.

Stunning line in a glorious situation, wickedly exposed but well bolted and relatively easy. I thought the moves were only 6a personally, but the exposure could bump it to 6a+/6b.

I found one tough move in the middle with some sharp and quite thin holds. Of course, the position and exposure are superb. Could be worthy of the + grade.
