Climb Thrombosis to the ledge then continue up the right-hand crack with a finish up the arete if required. Another tricky one. © Rockfax

I loved it. This is usually a bad sign and should warn off people without my unhealthy fondness for offwidths. For bonus points, I crawled right into the ledge in the arete and spent some time sat there wondering if I'd ever be able to extricate myself again without falling off.

Found the wide crack horrendous and couldn't move out it.

Bit of a battle at VS! Possibly should have laybacked like Becky. No gear big enough to fit in the crack.

Tough off-width almost got the better of me, but there's some nice respite on the ledge before continuing on with the arete.
