Done by mistake instead of Kelly's Eliminate. Unprotected after the steep start, but very easy climbing.

Enjoyable route, but a bit hard to avoid the V. Diff on the right.

I led this thinking I was going up Kelly's Eliminate, this feels the most natural line on this face however it would have been easy to use the arete of the Diff next door. I didn't feel the need to place any gear, only took the rope up to allow Matt to second up. No solo though because I had the option to place gear when there was some.

Great climbing, not much in the way of gear, especially towards the top. Not using the arete feels somewhat contrived but results in some lovely moves.
