V bold mantelshelf at the top, I bailed to the flake left. Harder and bolder than splinter.

Tried this but couldn't get off the ledge. In the end used the hold on Splinter, edged my way up to hold the next ledge and traversed along it to the left arete, went up there. Really enjoyed it!

With wucc. was abit greasy from the mist so was pretty much impossible. Manage to do it with a dyno. One member finally got it the conventional way.
