Cod HVS 4c
[Dodgy DWS in The Barnacle Traverse Area, 3 kb]20m. Start up the left side of the arete avoiding holds and gear on Oggie. From the large ledge place high gear to protect moves to a good gear placement on the wall right of the arete. From here make exciting moves up leftwards via blocks which are sounder than they appear.

What a great route, despite being short. The moves over the steep ground at the top are solid and very enjoyable. Definitely coming back to lead this one.

Had to come back and have a go at the correct finish, great exposed steep climbing,very intimidating but good gear, not sure using knee bars is normally 4C territory. Deserves a photo of the top section from the side, would show the wild position and generate the interest this route deserves. Better and harder than Abbott's Way?

Finished straight up from half way ledge staying just left of arÍte, should have studied photo taken by Kafoozalem which clearly shows it going around the RH side of the arÍte to get to the top. This LH side is more than 4C and I dogged between every break, but good powerful climbing with good gear.
