Climb the slim pillar, probably making some use of the left arete, but how much?

Also used the left arete too much to make it feel like a 7a+. Took a few goes at working a good sequence between the 2nd and third clip, then found a great one that went real smooth

dannyboy83 - Lead O/S - 29/Aug/12 with Leona

Got through tricky start bit lead me into the other route, contrived line, prob best to just use the arete.
Rick hard Rock - Lead dog - 26/Jul/12

Hidden - Lead O/S - 24/Jul/12

Retro-flash. I tried to avoid the left arete but forced into screwballed and back out, about 7a+ like that and 6c+ if one keeps to the left arete. A contrived route.

Dan Jenkin - Lead O/S - 21/Aug/11 with Rich Jenkin

Hidden - Lead O/S - 23/Jul/11

easier than screwballed next to it IMO, but maybe that's because it's easier to read.
Tom Brierley Gore - Lead O/S - 02/Jul/11 with Shijing Hu

Bates - Lead O/S - 19/Jun/11

about 6c/+ with the arete some of the way
Dan_Carroll - Lead β - 24/Apr/11 with caspian

Caspian Johnson - Lead O/S - 24/Apr/11 with Dan carrol

used the left arete all the way - 6c. to avoid it would be very contrived
Billg - Lead O/S - 13/Mar/11 with James Kauntze

Just got back from Mallorca, would have been 6c there.

Cowflinger - TR - 13/Aug/10 with Suzanne

On sight putting clips in. Used left arete most of the way: probably 6c+ the way I did it.

I used the arete on the left quite a lot and did feel more like a 6c or so. Rafael went right and looked a lot harder, I should repeat it another time going right at the tower.
Tomar - Lead O/S - 19/Jul/10 with Tom

fun bouldery crux
brices - Lead RP - 18/Jul/10

Hidden - TR dog - 23/Jun/10

Defo not 7a+ the way I did it, tried it the other way (going right a bit) and it seemed no harder, couldn't see a way to go properly direct.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 19/Jun/08

Used the left arete - how everyone else does it? Should do properly later, but this makes the moves over the overlap desperate - I think it's been done.
Paz - Lead RP - 05/Apr/08 with TS2

Hidden - Lead RP - 2008

More like F6c+ the way I did it.

westyb3 - Lead - Oct/06

A direct eliminate has been done and sticking to the arete is a high 6 apparently. The 7b half and half version climbs logically but is escapable.
