Makes an already brilliant climb even better. Boulder start.

found the 5b bit much easier that the 5a bit.

Nice! how direct do you start? climbing the front aret feels much harder than 5b.

Ended up climbing in somewhat dark conditions, so ran it out after putting gear halfway... Fun route though!

Direct start makes a better line, but the best climbing is still on the original - lovely balancy steps. Protection a bit fiddly and spaced, but sufficient. Classic. (Previously seconded original.)
Andy Clarke - Lead β - 22/Jul/12 with Tim, Dale
Mix of the direct and the White Out finish makes for an exciting climb, when you're expecting a classic HVS!

Felt harder than I remembered, some very slopey holds in the bottom half and took a while to figure out the normal route crux, great fun though!

Lovely bottom section of slopeyness. Good cams in the breaks. You may be able to find a lovely knee bar on Blizzard ridge :)

Put a foot on the block behind for one move which felt a little like cheating, otherwise a nice route and better protected that I'd expected. We put a top rope down after my mate backed off the lead.

Was expecting it to have a lot less gear than it did, pretty well protected imo.

A great line up an arete, not as bold as the guidebook says and the slopey start is quite thought provoking...
