[Osram HVS 5A, 2 kb]Loose rock below the corner cleared in 2009, now much safer. Take a Friend 1.5 or two! A good pitch.

Nick Biven - 2014

Some obviously loose sections however I also pulled a house-brick sized lump off what appeared to be a totally solid part of the arete which gave me the creeps for the rest of the route. So perhaps not that safe after all...

I pulled a half ton chunk of rock off that formed part of the lower crack. Can still reach main higher crack by climbing left at about same grade

Ab off bolt belay is about 30m (ie fine with double ropes and probably OK with a 60m single). The alternative scramble off left looks horrific - steep, loose, vegetated and no margin for error.

An ok route, with some poor rock. Nice climbing in the second half. The bold bit is easy.
