The big arete with a good landing climbed mainly on the right side.

Superb. 'Tis more like 5c if you swap onto the left above the rock of pain.

Brilliant. Gets E3 6a in the guide, felt more like E3 5c. I'm not sure how you would climb it mainly on the right even at E3 6a - the obvious line seemed to start on the right and climb mostly on the arete or slightly on the left. I didn't use pads but even with them I'd sayd it's a bit high to be given a bouldering grade.
