[Guardian Angel, 2 kb]10m. Start on the right hand side of the arete, climb easily up and right to reach a nubbin high on the wall. Use this to rock over, heart in mouth, onto the stunning clean slab. Finish direct with a rong reach for the pocket. A stunning climb which was well ahead of it's time when first climbed.
