I had climbed the bottom up to the arette before but always bailed out and finished up the arette until now. The top section turns out to be fiddly but lots of fun.

Same way: reach block hold (on Shed Arete), stand on it; then rock over left onto narrow foot ledge. One more hard move using a good crimp up left (which also takes a small wire) up the slab to jugs. For this line E1 5c seems about right.
Didn't know where this went but felt harder than E1 wherever it was. Preplaced first two bits of gear.
Still not sure of exact line, or what is/isn't allowed. With the comfort of a rope above me, looked for a line further left, out of reach of the arete. From standing on the block, you can rock over left onto a little foot edge, and reach up left for a good positive little hold which looks like it would also take a small wire. One more hard move then remains. Is this what the FA had in mind? who knows.
Found this hard, and the line rather contrived. Needed a couple of tries.
stunning bouldery start up the rounded rib.one fall moving onto the slab-damned greenery on shoe does nothing for friction!lovely delicate finish tho.really good climb
