Traverse awkwardly right to the easier-angled side of the shallow arete and finish up the still interesting walls. © ROCKFAX

Fell off around the arette! Will go clean next time I think. Might even consider leading it (!)

Hard for the grade. The move right is a bit blind.

Managed to get within 30cm of eye level with the fourth bolt but got trapped in an awkward position and bailed. We'll be back :)

good route, some great crux moves after steep easy start. On first attempt got scared on upper wall, clipped a thread that was on a route to the right. lowered off it. the rock around the two old threads snapped, my next quickdraw caught me. The lesson - don't trust small threads? Hard route.

really nice line, good to have a warm up that isn't shite. for some reason, i kept not seeing the bolts that were right in front of my face, the beta was from folk on the ground shouting 'it's there! three inches from your right hand you fool!'
