got almost to the top but didnt commit to throwing for the last holds as it felt high and the landing was bad. maybe on a cooler day with an extra mat..

Took a couple of goes, ground up. Two mats, but direct finish still felt exciting.

All the way up the arete. This is a brilliant little route but hard and serious. Felt more like a E4 or E5 6b
