We soloed up to the belay just right of the flake. Bit scary in the wind, but I got 2 slings on the arete, first held down with my shoes, the second with a bunch of hexes! Would have made quite a funny photo.... Fave move was stepping off the top of the flake onto the headwall. Massively cool route
mishabruml - Lead O/S - 27/Jun/15 with SallyReeves89
One of those very rare occasions where I used the old trick of taping slings in place so they can't get lifted off

Some route - mind-blowing exposure. Reasonable slings on the arÍte gave me the balls to go for the (pretty straightforward) moves.

Yikes!! Very exposed, a wee bit loose in places and lacking in meaningful gear where it counts. Best candidate for HVS 4b I've done. Three stars for being so different though.
Liam Ingram - Lead O/S - 25/Jun/11 with Becky Stedham
Absolutely brilliant fun. Huge exposure and not much gear but easy moves on massive holds. Just a very cool feature. First pitch looked like a waste of time, you can just scramble or ab to the base of the second pitch from above. Can't recommend this climb enough as it has bags of what it's all about - fun!.
John 'B' Hutchinson - Lead O/S - 20/Jun/11 with Matthew Thompson
Surely HVS for the fear factor?
