finished direct up the bold slabby arete of war wound, seemed like a more natural line, vs 4c this way maybe?

with my limited experience this felt on a par with other HS that I've done this trip, say's it in the book too. Last climb of my first grit trip and a pleasant finish to the trip. fluttery moment working out the direction of the run out bit, Cams would have made this easier but not necessary to protect it.
