Lovely climb despite the polish... Clean onsight as finished up the arete which is far more worthwhile but have done the rest of the climb before

Lovely climb, I'm not a fan of jamming but I ended up jamming my leg into the second crack which was interesting. Started the easy finish to the left of the arete as I thought this was the correct way. BMC book advises to climb up the arete, so I then climbed down and did the arete version, interesting getting into the arete but I'm not sure it's a 4c move. Not sure if I did this right?
jennifers87 - Lead O/S - 08/Sep/12 with Mike Morgan

Jen's lead, can't agree with the grade, definitely not 4c and definitely not VS - it's the most logical direct line.
