Slipped whilst trying to remove an awkward nut at the start but climbed clean from ground up after this.

Great moves up the arete at the end, made much easier with a heel hook.

Great Route, plenty of variety - Jams, bridging and a fine arrete to finish. Very well protected. Would give it HS 4b not VS 4b.

detoured to go up the gully as I was sketchy about the moves near the top and the quality of the rock for a placement.

I bridged the first part and think it would have been harder than 4b had I not done this. The top section felt a bit exposed for a couple of mobves.

when the guide book says the upper part isn't well protected, it means there's no gear in the top 3rd.

proberbly soft VS or stiff HS. I took the overhang slightly more direct than the book shows.
