The initial step up was ok but the moves to step over around the arete was a bit unnerving as you can't see the footholds, though they are really good. After that step back right into the face higher up and it was easier with relatively good handholds

Did not do 2nd pitch, instead going straight up RHS of the fin / nose for a more direct but easier finish which is good fun - dynamic and airy on huge holds.
