Didn't like this at all, the rock was really scrittly all the way up and felt really dodgy underfoot. Would have been good climbing otherwise.

The humidity and midges reduced the 3 star experience somewhat today, unfortunately.

A REALLY GOOD CLIMB (well worth *** it gets in my RF guide) The overhang was well protected and much easier than expected, I'd done the bold bit (the starting arete) but didn't know it then. Lovely upper arete.
