Definatly Vs, definatly not 4c., the gear is all there, if you look for it, getting established on the arete was too hard for me though. Downclimbed.

Wow! What a sandbag?! Felt at least 5a to me and I'm not overly short (170cm). Good climbing though

Forgot that I'd tried this before... watch out for the loose flakes and crumbly rock in the top break. Mattias didn't follow.

Backed off as I didn't fancy 5b moves above rubbish gear on a VS.

Really a lot harder than either VS or 4c. The move above the flake is unprotected unless you have a giant cam, and is very hard indeed unless you are more than 6ft tall. After that it relents to 'only' bold 4c!

Fluffed the lead (read the line wrong), flew up on second.
