Really tricky at a few sections. Just reading the moves I found very difficult. Very glad I managed to do it clean. Great route!

Faffed around about a third of the way up as I was uncertain about my gear. Turned out it was ok when I fell off and put it to the test.

Really nice route, hardest moves at the bottom and the top, but pretty sustained all the way up the arete. Lovely flowing moves with good rests. Felt fairly pumpy at E3 but have just come from a month of crack climbing in Squamish and this is the first hard route since then. Either way had to put in a bit of effort to get to the top! Prob a touch soft... Didn't feel like I was going to fall off as long as I didn't get too pumped... one of the nicest routes I've climbed this year. 3 stars?
