Fell off a little short of 3rd bolt when a chunk of the arete came off as i was pulling up. Ended up partially inverted with my head below the first bolt. Pulled back on and continued to top. Last bolt before lower off missing.

First clip required a short rest. Great varied climb. Keen to repeat clean but darkness set in! Bouldering mat could be good if not confident at the start.

I thought the start merits a 6a.

Exciting moves to start - by the time you're stable, you might as well clip only the second bolt!
