Couldn't find the clipping holds first try - the bolts were just out of reach.

Climbing badly ... even so this seems really hard for the grade!

Good arete climb ( I like aretes :-)) with a fun roof finish. Fair at the grade and worth a star.

Sharp arete is a bit unnerving

Had to hang on the rope at the top to untangle myself from the down-rope.

Got to the top but was too far left of the belay to clip it and didn't have the strength left in my hands to clip. One day!

top moves quite tricky, being tallish makes it 6b+, pretty hard otherwise i imagine. lower arette great fun.

Gutted about this! Had a bit of a struggle all the way up apperantly! Not sure why, pretty sure the majority of the moves were pretty easy, really sharp interesting arete. Eventually I'd managed to get myself up to the roof. Was shitting them as I couldn't see the next clip and the previous was below me. But you can just reach round over the top if you try. Then for the hard move, had to use some really clever footwork, right hand right out on the right arete, then a swing and a hop up to a sloping pocket up and left. Move up slightly, and found out that this pocket has a good hold in the top of it, like a 2 finger pocket. Stood up right, was within reach of the bolt, but couldn't let go with my right hand to clip. Sat there getting pumped for a while, then decided to throw up for a hold above the belay hoping it would be good and I could hold it. Turns out it wasn't, took my first big fall, which has probably done me good. Fell down below the roof and bounced off the face of the arete just below the roof. Didn't hurt a bit, was really annoyed but probably did me more good in the long run than managing it would have!
