Lovely climbing, not much gear. Perhaps not the best first outdoor climb of the season. Would be better if longer and more placements for the grade.

Jayster329 21/May/14 2nd O/S

bit easy for an S4a, probably because easier for taller people towards the top. (wish i had time to lead it.)

Solo'd with a rope, set off to lead it, decided not to place gear and at the committing section could not have and chose to commit. Not quite a full solo because I had a rope attached but full solo feeling when making the crux move.

Lovely severe worthy of a star again. Only dubious part is laying back off the edge of the arete and trusting your feet but it is a great quality climb.
