the start would make a good alternative start to Fairy Nuff, the top feels a bit eliminate.

Would have been nice to have onsight led this, but alas! Suprisingly hard moves to move around the initial roof, but the subsequent arete in such a fine position is fantastic! The top section has one awkward move and then some fine but quite sustained moves to the top - lovely gritstone climbing though.

Took a fall off this unfortunately! Moving out from under the roof is pretty hard but managed that without too much difficulty. Moves out onto the arete remind me of Ellis' eliminate and Saul's arete. Really nice moves up to the niche, then a nice horrific fist crack. Really high right hand fist jam, stand on small smears and stand right up, pull on a small crimp and get into the next niche. Put in a bomber cam and started pumping out. Eventually I made a move up, trying to avoid the left crack (my first mistake, being too eliminate) then grasping for an awful seam, and fell off. Pretty annoyed but second time I used to holds out left a little more, still pretty direct and did it easily enough!
