Went too far right in my bid to avoid using the arete and ended up perilously bridging between this and the VS next to it on very poor hand holds. My second found the easier correct way, lovely climb though.

Where it's natural to use the arete use the arete! (and it takes you to a lower off) Climbing the route without using the arete is certainly harder than 6a.
