The Riddler E3 6a
20m. Climb the right side of the arete, just right of the start of Bat Buttress, to a ledge under the nose. Climb the sharp arete and move left to ‘nostril’ of the nose and arrange protection. Use pockets to pull up and right then compose yourself for the final moves to good finishing holds.

Freezing cold - right hand was numb on crux. Soft for E3 6a? Felt more like E2 5c? A decent route but too broken by big ledge in middle to deserve 2 stars.

Great route; two bellyflops and a sequencey committing finale.

Thought this looked like a bargin for E3, that was until I greased off the final moves onto the nose, caught my heels on the way down and back planted the massive shelf on the rope stretch! next thing i know i'm hanging inverted in my harness wandering what went wrong.I hobbled back to the car bruised but otherwise ok, I vowed to come back and repeat it after brushing the topout .

Good climbing. Not hard for 6a but quite committing at the top.
