Got pulled onto blocks early...sketchy gear! Also top block is wobbly!

Well I took a rope up but was gear-less

Nice! Avoided the staircase at the top and kept to the arete. Thought it was S 4a.

A couple of good moves on but a patchy route. Good holds that aren't so obvious from the ground. Decent gear for the top bit, a little lacking at the bottom but there's only one move to do. S 4a seems right. Much easier than either Flying Buttress.

Not VS by a long way. Easy start- and top is straight forward and well protected.Severe 4a?

Nowhere near a VS! Gets severe in the new Froggatt guide, which is much more like it.
