I remember the guidebook talking about a 'hidden hold' on the arete and being astonished to find a huge downward-pointing spike. Now, some 28 years later, I see a photo of it for the first time! I remember moving up there and then using the spike as a huge undercut with both hands to move left in a sensational overhanging position. Great fun!
