Very bold at the grade with no gear till the half-way point and it's not totally straightforward to there. Really nice climbing though and lack of gear does add a little something!
mattwilk - Lead O/S - 22/Jul/12 with Lou

Interesting introduction to the grade, wasn't expecting the lack of gear. Succeeding in executing a "salmon belly flop" because my legs just don't go high enough it turns out.

No gear till you finish the traverse, far more bold than I expected.

Crux is tough but once you get your left arm out left on the edge works quite well. Best climb of the day.

Not really the obvious choice of route for me not liking slabs, nevermind unprotected ones but decided I would push the boat out and try one and actually really enjoyed it! Quite wobbley on the traverse as the footholds looked quite polished, then a tricky move round the arete still without protection. Finally put a nut and a cam in, then found the next move really awkward for 4a! A bit of a mantle type thing but without any holds. Figured it out in the end just by bringing foot up a bit higher and using a hold on the arete. Lizzie followed with relative ease!
