Felt a bit strenny and not obvious gear for VS? Maybe had the willies as it was first climb of the session. Decent route though, with nice high footed rockovers.

None of the moves particularly hard, but serious lack of proper protection low down

The lack of gear on the lower section is disturbing but the move round onto the arete makes it all worth it, mental!

Really nice route, felt harder than VS but I am usually bad at aretes.

THardSevere 06/Mar/11 2nd O/S

found the moves tricky and the gear wasn't great. wouldn't have wanted to lead it
