Surprisingly good route, though a bit contrived/debatable in that I guess you should keep out of the big crack to the right but you make it definitely harder if you do. Found it pretty hard for the grade, but that might just be me.

Worked the moves - highlighted all my weakness with power endurance! Will come back to red point this one.

Nice layback moves (almost barn door).

Tricky not the best warm up as there's an iffy move near the top.

first ascent went up large crack on right. Not the right way made it too easy. Leant off crack to the left to reach pocket under ledge on second climb.

Belay is terribly rusty - some tat there and a pillar - may be advisable to abseil off instead of lowering.

Weaved around the arete quite alot to find the moves. Quite sustained with no real crux section. Although the swing back right around the arete to reach the lower off felt bold, despite being very close to the highest bolt.

Short and sweet, good variation of moves.

White Wand with bolts !! And more holds. Ok an easier angle too, but still very good
