The wall 3m right of the arete gives good climbing that eases with height. Exit over to the right. There are two poorer left-hand finishes: The Colostomy Finish, 7a - left towards the arete and over a small roof; and Physical Fizz, 6c+ - continue slightly higher then move left below a bolt.

An excellent, varied route requiring some nut protection or an extremely long kneck. Technical and safe at the bottom, bold (a bit loose) and scary near the top!

Fully bolted.

neither loose, nor scary and not requiring nuts nowadays. A good route.

Should definitely have stayed at F6b+ which it actually is. Not very hard, several tricky sections but all can be solved reasonably. More importantly it's a nice route with continuously good climbing right from the neat lower wall to balancy finish.

The 7a finish is not that bad and DOES have a lower off.
Ropeboy - 25/Jun/05

Just two tricky moves I thought. Pretty good though! Not sure what grade it gets in the guide? 6a+ I think.

Borderline 6b+/6c - but surely at least a full grade easier than Legal Action. Worth 2 stars. Shares a lower-off with Schools Out - could do with it's own
