3* from me, got it 4th tie-in (put the clips in, work the moves, failed RP, success). The heel hook to get the crimp in the middle was pretty hard, but I found the crux to be the slap to the sloper just below the jugs at the top.

Think I should be able to link top and botto around the crux next time, but the crux felt hard!

Really good, but felt hard. Spent ages grappling with the wrong side of the arete on first tie-in. Had a quick RP before it got dark, but was too pumped on the long move to the crimp. Keen to finish it off.
