Start up Phoenix but pass the overhang to the L and continue deviously up the steep wall above, eventually bearing R to finish on the arete.

Bubbles backed off the start of Phoenix, so I did this. Brilliant climbing up the groove, to hard move onto the wall (I heel-hooked above my left hand!?) Above this interest is sustained mainly due to the lactic in your forearms, take it steady and you shouldn't fall off. Gear is ok on this upper section but some pieces not above suspicion. Overall hard E3 I thought - not sure whether easy 6a or just hard 5c. Really good climbing throughout.

on al's gear. Good route, found entering the groove low down the hardest bit. Felt about 3 grades easier than astromoth

Good climb, but probably more like E3 5c. The hardest move is actually at the start, shared with the E2 Phoenix!

It was given E4 in them days but we thought E3 was about right.
