Blew it right at the end of the difficulties twice. Got it fairly easily 3rd go. Superb climbing up the face of the arete, second half not as good but still an excellent climb!

Careful, make sure your belayer and rope are out of the way...a massive lump of this around the crux is going to fall off at some point. Still very much worthwhile, though. Excellent fun.
