It is easy to see the offending section in advance, and the leader can make a choice either to boldly go or to retreat onto the arete. I expect it will get bolted soon, but it will be a shame to ruin the excitement/terror! The overhang at the end was nice too. 2 stars from me!

funsized 11 Nov, 2009 Lead O/S Awesome setting. Badly Bolted (not great for TR either, the loweroff puts serious abrasion on the rope). Did this at high tide and dropped my quikdraw in the drink. Got damp retrieving it.

jelaby 9 May, 2009 Lead dog Did this just after high tide, and CoffeePot didn't get wet at all, though it made lowering off more interesting that it might have been. Grabbed the third QD through fear of unbalancing, but the rest was alright, despite the runout feel.
