SDS on left side of obvious arete

FA: Art Schultz & Alastair Robertson, 12 Dec

SDS right side of arete, delicate mantel

FA: Art Schultz & Alastair Robertson, 12 Dec

Old school lay backing on stellar stone. Straight up.

Head up layback to jug then step left onto face and across to flake on arete and up

This is what granite is all about! This tenuous slab is found just round to the left of Body Painter. Bridge off the block and lurch onto the slab. The thin line trends up the vague scoop past two bolts, with a finish that will stay with you for some time. Probably E4/5 6b in real money. Medium cams to belay. The direct start from the floor is an open project, it goes but will need a cold day.

To access the top of the route - from the block with the Painter loweroff on it, jump across the gap and abseil 3m down to the finish ledge.

FA: Dec 2021

Open proj. Extended thin bouldering up left side of slab to better holds at half height.
