Nut or small cam looks possible before the crux move. The arete is solid once you reach it.

straightforward VS climbing and its VS in the definitive too. Nice route though, its going on the soloing circuit :)

Nice, one committing, move then its all over. Never a HVS. Probably closer to HS if you're tall and can place the good gear before moving.

valentinesbabe 10/Mar/12 TR O/S

Charley's lead. Straightforward move once you trust your foot.

Seconded it after Rob had lead the "Falstaff's Innominate" so i could let him know what it was like, as he wasn't convinced by it. Wish i had been more selfish and lead it, as its really nice!
