On the left edge of the IRS wall is an almost vertical arete with 7 bolts. This is Alf's Arete. Technical edging and very thin holds characterise this face climb. The first bolt is a little high, and you definitely don't want to blow it before clipping it. The finish, though quite slabby, is run out and forces you to keep your concentration high.
7 bolts. First one is kind of high off the ground. Anchor on top.
