bold at the crux but plenty of time to suss it out from the ledge - really only one tricky move and the rest is a romp

Fell off at the crux, bit of a shock - sudden foot pop! Seems I get nervous and climb poorly while being watched. Wire slot protecting the crux is as good as it could be if you have the right size.

Having watched Jacob fall onto that single microwire. It was bomber though. I went for some awesome slappy laybacking up the arete.

Self-belay. Took several attempts for me to get the crux.
Finished up Welcome to the Cruise to make the end more spicy. Delighted :o)

Now without loose block, there is no gear at the ledge, but you wont kill your belayer. With one decent wire out right before the crux, felt a bit more spicy than before, but same tech grade. (E3/4 5c)

It was not really on 'sight as' it was dark!

Upper arete felt pretty bold, since I wasnt sure whether the block that forms the rest ledge (and last gear) would hold a fall. Once you commit its not that hard though.
Really should finish up WTTC to keep in character!

Good climb and not as hard as it looks. Perfect route for my injured left hand, all the crimps are on the right!

The second part of the arÍte was too bold for me, I'll lead when I have more confidence in my gear. Otherwise it was a brilliant climb.

Very nice arete climb well worth doing, shame about the loose block low down and not sure quite how solid some of the gear is. Great moves with a very airy runout but not too hard if you keep breathing! Could be the last outdoor route of the Scottish season?
Chad123 - AltLd O/S - 16/Oct/08 with Kiwi Steve
Amazing climbing up the arÍte, abbed a few weeks back to clean it but pretty much on-sight,it didn't climb at all like expected and I even found some nice gear. Nice reasonably protected moves up to the ledge, which I found very hard to leave. Bit of a boulder problem to get up the bold arÍte above took a while to commit and it was fin scary but very very nice.
