Climbed to the gear in the break in the arete on the right as per CC guide, up the left side of the arete for 1 move and then up and left into the groove, seemed the obvious line and never harder than 5a

Nice little climb, did the alternative direct way for the 5c. I can confirm (as per the description) the 2nd concretion can be quite accommodating to gear if you are sneaky and persistent enough :)

Climbed as described in Climber's club through arete on the right. Graded E1 5a in the guidebook, with direct variant avoiding arete graded 5b.

Good climbing all the way
julesmckim - 2nd O/S - 08/Jun/14 with Rob Smart

Was expecting a soft touch E1 5a according to the guide book, solid E1 5b in my opinion...

Climbed it cleanly, but had seconded cleanly previously, the final top section, which the top shares, of the HVS 5a next to it.

Last climb of the day after Spanish Inquisition and Traitor. Must have gone off route as i found the top half much harder than i imagined it should be.

tough climb. 5a in the guidebook but i reckon 5b is a better grade for it. not sure where the finish was meant to be as the obvious line was very green and slippery
