Took me a few attempts at different moves to switch from the gully to the arete, there was a place where a hand hold had obviously snapped off (much cleaner fresher looking rock exposed to left of a shelf remain 1/3 of way up) which i think was probably crucial to keeping the VD grade aiding the right trend onto the arete.
