take the line up the right side of the arete, between Little Chef and The Sod. The new Climber Club guide gives the wrong line. Do Not start as for The Sod it starts on the arete to the left.

Some confusion with the Topo lead to me stubbornly working this one. Quite good fun once I'd realised it wasn't the easy grade I'd first expected and my difficulties were justified!
Lil_Pete - Lead dog - 21/Sep/09 with Matt Claydon

Had to choose between trying for a clean lead for this or Levitation by Proxy. Glad I chose the latter. This one's fun, though.
