Rubbish. Bad belay spot and friable rock. I initially went up right of the arete and ran out of sizeable hand-holds. The route is left of the arete on the massive ledges.

Short, difficult to belay but not bad for starters on a days climbing if you discount the loose rock.

Possibly the worst climb ever. Loose, short, pointless. Not worth hauling the ropes up the grassy slopes below. Avoid like the plague. Minus 3 stars.
