Description:© (christo)

A line of fourty-something bolts, most of which look like blobs of rust. Apparently there are three newish stainless bolts on the crux though...

Start: Start as for 'The Fear'.

  1. 10m (16) Start as for 'The Fear', but continue straight up to a large belay ledge rather than than traversing left into the corner.

  2. 25m (20) Start up coner, past hardish moves before shifting left onto the arete. Follow the left trending roof/corner. The line of manky bolts and rust streaks leads the way.
