Description 

An unsinkable experience up the Arete, one of the best lines on slate. The first pitch has some rock that needs watching , but the upper rib is in an eye catching position. Start up a short steep wall just right of the arete. Wires hard hats and life boats should be taken.P1) Climb the initial awkward wall to gain the lower rib. Weave carefully up this,just right of the edge,passing a bolt to reach a small two bolt stance and belay.5.8R 85'P2)Climb up just right of of the edge to a crack,then move up and left to gain the arete (piton pro). Pull up to the bolt and move delicately right past this to reach better holds that lead to the top.5.10d.80'
