G-Up. A hard first move into steadier but still interesting climbing. Great stuff!

Good, but felt a little eliminate in comparison to its neighbouring arete (which was brilliant).

Couple of false starts. Great climbing but feels a bit squeezed in?

Bailed off from over half-height onto my tiny mat! I found the line quite indistinct, naturally drawing you either too close to the left arete or too close to the VS crack on the right (big chickenheads) - tried to stay right in the middle and failed. Blinkered approach certainly deserves an extra E-grade given the lack of pro, I would've thought. I think I need someone to tell me what I'm allowed to use on this one!

So pleased to send this. Bloody superb climbing and when it gets high and scary the holds get really good! One of the best highballs in yorkshire.
