Interesting moves and is (a bit) better than it looks. Taking the arete direct is around 6a+. © Rockfax

Nice flake. Bolts feel quite widely spaced and were at the limit of my reach in some places. Went left around the arete but might try direct next time.

personally not sure if i missed a bolt out by not going the way the book said but it seems hard as to go left and up the arete from where u start even more so, so close to the floor but the rest of the route was bomber just check a few holds on the way up as it was a little loose but not enough to pop under your weight :)

Annoyingly wandered off route and lobbed off. Nice easy route as long as you follow the bolts.
