A long climb with some poor rock on pitch 1. Climb a flaky crack left of the arete to an overhang and, above this, a stance. Balance up the exposed arete on the left then teeter back into the main groove and finish up this (4c). The crack and groove to the right offer a tougher though safer option - The Fist Finish, HVS 5b.

Worth a look. First pitch ever so slightly crumbly, but lots of variety. Steep crack, airy traverse, nice second slab pitch.
