Quite eliminate, I climbed the slab basically not using the arete or holds too close to it. More of a nice no star route than a 1 star route imo. Some of the rock towards the top is not very good (but you don't use it for hands or feet really)

Took me three attempts to get the first move dialled but I got there in the end with a funky swap from horizontal handjam to undercling then fingertapping up the wall to get the break. Lovely climb :D Solid HVS if you don't have a good reach on you.

Found the start hard & tried the same direction about 10 minutes. Gave up, took gear ok (gear is fine) then decided to have one more go. tried a different set of holds & job was a good un. Start still felt hard but don't know how much of this was me being tired from earlier attempts. Rest of route felt MUCH easier than the start.
