bailed from the second ledge on the arete above the starting break. great line, one to come back to in cleaner conditions.

Bailed early on, needs a clean and a better day for me.

Excellent lower arÍte feels quite high on the crux, no mats. Tough and bold E2 5c** as per guide.

Alex did the original but figured I might as well try the harder start. Well worth coming back for when I'm feeling bolder!

An excellent climb. More technical than reachy start followed by increasing boldness through gradually easing moves, to welcome gear and 4c/5a romping. A really solid ascent for me, thanks to good inspiration
