Andromeda E3 6a

Rockfax Description
An eliminate of limited appeal squeezed into the small gap between Perseus and Darius. Start as for Perseus but pull left onto the wall above the small overlap. Continue in a direct line, past the poor stance on Darius, to arrive at the Darius bolt from the right. Finish direct. © ROCKFAX

Worth doing, would be a two star route on most crags and worth a star here. It does go close to Darius and Perseus but feels sufficiently independent - the holds on the other routes are out of reach. Did the travers in from the right start to Perseus - quite hard, 6a? Then up the Perseus flake (harder than I remembered) and broke off left at the peg above the flake. Good climbing with a 6a sequence just below the Darius ledge (or may be hard 5c, I was a bit tiered by then). From the ledge went up to the right of the Darius bolt, past the Darius thread and a DIY thread. Looks blank but there are holds there! 5c to a break with so-so holds (so-so when you're tired!), possible gear but pumpy to place so went for the next break, which was unhelpfully sloping, so instead moved left a bit more in line with the Darius bolt and finished up from there. Not sure it's 6a for this bit done this way but all good fun.
