John Fodor on the axe.


E4 6b, A beautiful arete, extremely exposed. start a few meters right of the arete. the rock is better then it looks from below, there are good holds where you want them and the gear is not bad. 50m long climb the flake crack to the roof make a hard move over not so good holds (crux) to a juggy leftward traverse and climb flakes to the arete and follow to the top passing a pegs on the right.


Located right of East Gully Groove, rappel in from top. some great photo ops from the top.


Standard British Rack.
