Wow, what an experience. Same first section as Suspension Bridge Arete up to the ledge, then it's a step to the right and straight up the wall on massive holds. Good gear placements on the steepest bits inspired the confidence needed to push on up a sustained section that is probably the steepest I have yet encountered. Topped out at the belay stake in failing light, (abseiling in the dark is becoming a habit), to a flash of lightning and dramatic drum-roll of thunder. Obviously the gods approve...
