Tricky move to get over the first ledge. Had to do a wide arm pull, taking the skin off my wrist.

started right of the arete as the rock was hotter than the sun, definitely drops it a grade or 2 doing that

Couldn't figure out how to get established on the arete so backed off.

Dad happily wandered to the right a little, early on, perhaps straying briefly onto Twin Cracks.

Nasty starting moves and a rather trivial finish, definitely not worth any stars.

The new Eastern Grit says this climb is a VS, which I agree with totally - it's nowhere near HVS. Nice climb though, with a good tricky start.

Hmmm getting onto the erete most definetly is the crux .. I spent long enough trying to figure it out. The wall at the top was interesting too. I had 1.5 moments when I thought I was going to fall off. My first HVS on grit :-)

Getting established on the arete was not easy, but a lot of fun!
