Rockfax Description
Start next to the wide chimney at the bottom right-hand corner of the slab. Climb the slab to the left of this then follow the arete above with a hard move past the overlap. Join and finish up Michelangelo. Low in the grade but quite serious. © Rockfax

Not too hard but some (a lot) really concerning rock in the top half.

Bit worrying and loose.

Easy up to the overlap. Took a fall at that point, then had a breather before trying again. Got over it but was pumped for the rest of the climb. "If this climbs easier than the grade (HVS) then I'm not ready for HVS"

Lead this line after Ross backed off teh crux at the overlap. Some uncertainty as whether this follows the arete or the face (I took the face). Great fun, but with more sparse gear than the VS routes.
