Thought this tough for the grade when I led it 4 years ago and I haven't changed my mind...

Agree with Andy (Deacon) about grade - middle section has some tough moves with just about adequate gear!

Move at mid-height off the gaston was pretty tough

Having a bad day but this felt nails, managed to keep off any good holds and it felt E2 5c to me.
Shame its so eliminate and escapable as the moves are very good.

Wow this was hard for E1 5b! More like E2 5c for me (170cm). Quite a bit harder than Great Buttress Arete (same grade in book) and more sustained and more committing than Thrown Away just left again. Hard to keep the blinkers on and keep direct up the centre of the slab and I found the finish over the rocking block really hard. All that said, it is a good route though

some nice moves but ridiculously contrived since you have to keep going back to the arete to place gear. start would be harder for anyone under about 5' 9"

Might have avoided some of the main difficulties on this - rather an eliminate.

Wouldn't have liked to lead this one! Really awkward move with quite poor gear! Only way I could figure of doing it, was using the poor flake, getting my right foot up onto the top of a small niche on the right, leftfoot on a poor smear, right foot up further on pretty much nothing, then a bit of a hop up to the top! Eep!
