The blunt right arete. The tall will find this a very soft touch while the short will find it virtually impossible. Quite delicate and powerful at the same time. Either traverse left or finish up the left hand side of the overhangs above the ledge - this doesn't change the grade.

Crused up to the slap over on to the sloper. Was a disappointed not to get it clean again after climbing so well

As the book says... desperate for the short.
riddle - Lead RP - 20/Mar/11 with Yasmina

Successfully completed the route on my second attempt. It felt much easier than my first ascent in August 2010. Reaching the top from the right side makes the finishing move over the large slopper much easier. Still want to solo this...

Thrutchy slaps for all the pockets and side-pull...then a huge throw/reach for the ticked crimper on the face allowing me to get the good pockets/jugs...not over from here though as latching the slopers at the top in less than perfect conditions is HARD!!! Took me a few goes to stick the slopers...
