Climbed both ways. Better problem and makes more sense climbing the arete on the right (VS).

Did this according to the BMC guide which says this route follows the left-hand side of the arete (grade seemed about right at E1 5b).

bunged in a load of cams in break on right wall then stepped down and attacked it direct after a a bit of feeling around and a rest found a good crimp under the nobbly bit. Got left foot up and i was at the top. Neither Ed or Graham could do it this way.Graham found hold out left below top.

Right hand finish. "cheating" in the new Rockfax, but just "easier" in the old BMC.
