Up Gabriel, then traverse left to a stance. Traverse back at higher level to ascend the spectacularly positioned grooves in the overhanging arete. A very photogenic route.

The first pitch is Gabriel (RT 129) The a wierd traverse around the arete, a small wall and a traverse back to the arete. Once on the arete climb the series of overhanging bottomless grooves. From the top of the top groove you have an uninterrupted 135ft view between your feet to the ground at the bottom of Gabriel. Brilliant
