An exposed arete with quality climbing tempered by a necky start. Starts 3m right of Snowdrop.
1) 5c, 15m. Launch out over a low roof and up the left-hand side of the arete to the fault-line.
2) 5c, 15m. Climb the crack right of the arete, then the arete itself steeply all the way to the top.

Excellent route, very worth while. The first 'bold' roof (superb!) isn't really bold you can get two good cams in. However the second half of the first pitch is run out and second pitch is a bit loose so still warrants the fluttery heart.
