Seemed very easy. After getting my hands in the break where it goes horizontal, was able to step round to the left side of the arete where there is a massive ledge. Is that right!? Or is that ledge not on route? Seems right on the arete line.

Harder than it looks, and somehow feels bold despite being well protected.

Lost a lot of skin in this one!

One route I'd fancied doing for a while. Borrowed a number 5 cam off Ben for this one as it looked quite big near the top of the crack. Turns out my 4 was perfect and lent it to Ben on his ascent. Move out left where the crux is supposidly seemed quite easy? I had gotten both hands on the top of the crack break (steep) then moved out left from there which seemed the obvious line. After that, a bit more protection and a few tricky moves up to the top. Including a quite tricky mantle! Ben clipped his belay loop to the gear on his ascent so I assisted by holding on to him from the top, lieing on my belly and toehooking the top. Lizzie again followed with ease!

Had a bit of an epic. Got gear totally tangled before the top move and had to be assisted by Alan. Thanks! Will have to come back and lead it properly.
