Not sure if I started correctly - awfully polished at the bottom. Started right in the chimney then pulled onto the bottom of the arÍte. Pissed it down at the top. Gardner had to second it wet.

Rob Jarratt 18/Apr Lead

Quite awkward at the bottom, not the best choice for the first route of the day. Difficult to avoid the neighbouring V.Diff at the top.

Howard J 18/Apr 2nd dog

Struggled with my dodgy shoulder, stood in a sling to bypass that move, OK after that

Harder than it looks. Paul started and placed most of the gear but ran out of steam at the crux. I had a go and managed it ok.

More like HS - we did it by sticking just to the arete and face, without using the opposite wall or blocks in the chimney.

Tricky start and quite exposed slab finish.

Very polished on the first foothold. Ok higher up. Gritstone to get this polished, horrible!

Yes, slightly artificial, but perhaps HS and not without worth.
