The stunning arete left of Red Square with hard climbing and limited gear. ***It is now possible to place a cam under the first roof in a placement that has developed from a thin band of softer rock being excavated over time from people trying to get gear in. With this in place the route is more in the region of E6/7 6c***

Onsighted on top rope, then went for the lead. Felt bold after the crux as the first two pegs seem to have rusted away. Really good but insecure feeling climbing.

Both lower pegs have now gone making it very bold to half height. Exceptionally good climbing from start to finish and visually on of the nicest lines I have ever climbed on. A day to remember.

Ran out of time for the headpoint - definitely worth returning for!

Greasy as sin! Felt way harder than the last time I got on it! Still might be a go-er if I'm fresh and conditions are good. Need to harden some of the holds...

Gutted I dropped the flash going for the wrong hold on the top section. 2nd go. Climbed trailing lead rope and placing gear to. Top section is putting me off big time.

Great route. Got all the moves with some rests in between and two worked sections. Pump stuff!

One of the best lines about with climbing to match. Wouldn't be amiss at E7 but regardless of the grade its just superb.

Lead after practice in the morning. Had a complete mind blank on the top section and forgot how to climb it but it came together in the end. Birkett is a legend, the start is well sketchy!

good send, the moves and holds are never quite secure, so its good fun. slipped a couple of times, but clung on- falling would have hurt
