Stonnis Arete Variations* VD 4a
26m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 4a, 14m. Start round to the left and climb easy rock to the base of a steep slab formed by a huge leaning block on the Stonnis Arete. Climb this (crux - hollow holds) to a stance and belay on a ledge over to the right on the other side of the ridge.
2) 12m. Head up the easy-angled groove below the ridge (big gear) to a steep and wide crack, just above the final easy groove. © ROCKFAX

It was a bit easier than I expected, so I wasn't sure we were on the right route.

Did the first pitch. A very 'traditional', and at the time dank, muddy, and cold climb. Still maintained some esoteric charm despite all that, so I'll forgive it. - AltLd O/S - 05/Jan/08 with jamesca
