Must have gone off-line here... found myself pulling through on slopers, which seems a bit out of place at 6a+!

Desperate line on the edge of the Central Gulley. Thrashed my way up it, much to the probable amusement of the onlooking crag oldtimers. Technical balancy moves and stamina showed me up.

Not sure if I was on the right route, followed the left hand edge of the arete. Not on the gold bolts like the guidebook said. Nice sustained climb with a bit of pump and some decent layback moves

Found getting up onto the corner the hardest part! Go up, the holds are there somewhere!
