Soloed all 3 slab routes in the rain and this was the trickiest although I stuck to the arete without trending rightwards. Would make great beginners routes.

pleasant enough but hard for v diff. think the frustration of not being able to stand on small footholds in floppy trainers would be enough to put many beginners off. same as all 3 routes on this buttress
