Start behind the tree to right of The Bone, climb the rib stepping left to use the good nut slot. Traverse right and use good holds to swing up into groove, followed to the top, maintaining interest to the very end.

Tough start on dubious gear, but the finish up the groove felt harder, absorbingly technical and quite delicate moves.

Took a long time to commit to the initial moves which I would say are even more difficult if you're me! Then it hits you at the top as well. Very pleased to get this clean.

Initial arete hard for grade but only stepped L for pro, then climbed direct on R. Are you allowed to climb it on the L? UKC description is ambiguous and CC guide does not mention going L at all. I also found the top groove hard but missed the best sequence here.

Put this as an onsight, since in the new guidebook it has a new independent line from half way up. Stepped briefly into the groove of The Bone near the start, which I don't remember doing before, but found it necessary this time. Hard for the grade, both the start and in the top corner. Significantly harder than The Bone, and not as good.

Almost bereft of gear on the bottom section unless you dodge left. Top section seemed to be as for The Bone's crux, so to be honest more bold than its neighbour and with same crux.
