[Kev getting spanked, 4 kb]The slabby left arete is world-class! The arete is the only hold and it slants the wrong way, so pad precariously up it to reach the top with a perfect blend of fear and hilarity. The fall is okay with mats and a spotter.

Really nice problem! Took about 20 minutes to work it out and then repeated it a few times for fun! 7a is really pushing it I think but definitely worth 3 stars!

Easter holiday back in Glasgow pays off big style! Fantastic psychological battle of fear vs friction.
