The impressive arete is followed throughout and is highly technical. Layback and heel-hook until forced left at two thirds height then pull rightwards to pass the final roof.

Sour grapes , Con ?
The route was done after Al Parker declared it too hard for him , and offered it to Rob , who looks at the crag from his kitchen window . Mick Norris seconded , I failed to .
