I didn't find this easy or well protected until beyond a hardish move, however it was very satisfying because I've never done before!

Start looked bold but felt ok once on it. Stayed on the arete all the way rather than moving right, which made the middle section a bit run-out, but a really nice route (first outdoor climb since last August!)

Bit of a runout to first piece of gear with poor landing. Lovely moves off positive laybacky crimpy holds on the lower arete and big jugs higher up.
Dave Foster - 2nd O/S - 10/May/09 with Andy and Alex

First bit of gear is highish but moves are steady. I noticed the block is little loose as well which the lead didn't notice. Better gear comes very soon.
