Tricky not the best warm up as there's an iffy move near the top.

first ascent went up large crack on right. Not the right way made it too easy. Leant off crack to the left to reach pocket under ledge on second climb.

Belay is terribly rusty - some tat there and a pillar - may be advisable to abseil off instead of lowering.

Weaved around the arete quite alot to find the moves. Quite sustained with no real crux section. Although the swing back right around the arete to reach the lower off felt bold, despite being very close to the highest bolt.

Short and sweet, good variation of moves.

White Wand with bolts !! And more holds. Ok an easier angle too, but still very good
