Pleased to lead this on first outdoor session of year. My reading of the whole arete thing is that you musn't use it from the last bolt (use of word now in description ?) tho I have previously done it without actually touching the arete!

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.

Too contrived but nice moves
Bulls Crack - Lead O/S - 25/May/13

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.

Did this in a bit of a hurry with Clwyd Mountaineering Club because the sun was setting. Mike Doyle will penalise me a clean ascent on this because I inadvertently put a hand on the arrete for balance, so I've down-graded myself! :)
