Seeing as it was my birthday we thought we should try this! None of us managed to get to the arête after the hand traverse. Must have missed something.

VS 4b in the definitive guide but I found it harder than Cosmic Crack.

A bit of a frightener, laybacked the arête stepping up with the wrong foot, quickly reversed and made the jug by the skin of my teeth facing a ground fall.
