βeta: Lovely couple of moves up the undercut flake lead to the crux of getting established on the left side of the arete. Did have that clingy "on edge" feeling which is perhaps why the adjective grade has been voted relatively high, although if you trust the friction on your feet and just keep going the jugs will come - just at the right time thankfully! Lastly, I'm 5'11" and it didn't seem particularly reachy.

βeta: Yup, tricky getting yourself sorted once you pull round the arete. Not convinced it's E1 though - Puppet Crack is way harder!

Droyd 23 May, 2017 Lead O/S Was surprised to find that the flake was the easy bit. Good and generally well protected, although the reach up to the top ledge was made quite intense by the dearth of non-scrittly holds
