Never been so scared on a route in my life. Felt very out there moving up the arÍte a long way from my gear cluster. Second pitch is also rather bold.

lead all 3 pitches, abseil approach. The final pitch is just brilliant. Climbed in the evening sun and belayed on top totally satisfied as the sun set.

joined ropes not needed, it is possible to abseil to the top of the first pitch off the stakes at the top.
