Topped out the climb on Andy's gear that he placed in the final break after Andy backed off. The bottom crack and swing out onto the face seem OK, but not very graceful. The top moves require a bit of balance but with a side pull for the right hand and a high left foot, the arete becomes a little more balanced. Then once established the top out is fine.

Hard & a bit scary but lovely route even with the minor epic. Was expecting the first half to be tricky & was worried I would pump out so didn't bother extending the gear (stupid mistake), found the moves straight forward and pulled around onto the ledge easily but then had a stupid amount of drag (single rope as well).
Thought that's all I needed when pushing my grade and then the weather turned as well and it got bloody windy really quickly. Spent awhile (AGGESSS) going up and down, trying to work out the crux & trying to avoid the barn-door. Even getting the cam in was tricky, the wind really didn't help. Couldn't even cheat with height on this one. Came close to escaping off right and got angry with both myself & the route however did it in the end. Was very balancy & tenuous but excellent. Felt closer to 5c the way I did it but could of been the conditions? Really pleased to have stuck with it but didn't appreciate the added spice of the drag and wind.

I didn't find the move right from the flake to bad, but that could be different on lead. I made a mess of the crux though when I actually sussed out the move it wasn't that bad. Good lead by Tim though

Lovely stuff! Diciest bit for me was moving out right from the top of the flake; I spent a lot of time faffing at "the crux", trying to get gear in from a very awkward position (that shown in the photo in the Rockfax guide, I'm ashamed to admit) before I realised it's actually a lot easier (for me) to just move on up! Great climb though.

An aptly named route. Nearly fell off the hand traverse with no protection in. Told my belayer I was off and spotted my landing but thought I had best commit. Dithered and dithered about the crux before doing it a very odd way (staying very close to the arete, pinching it high up, rocking up and then swivelling before crossing my foot through!). Felt about 5c that way.

couldn't do the crux. the cam placement isn't great, fumbled around doing it and was too pumped. Backed off.

Had to back off as opposing nuts in a cam crack really didn't inspire me and when I backed the gear up the drag was enormous.
Before cams this would have been ok with nuts but the rock looked worn from use of cam :(

Took a while to figure out the crux, but got it in the end - glad to find the friend slots! Great route.

Slipped at the crux but held the slot dangling around the left of the arete. Managed to reverse back to the ledge and complete the route.
