I'm always wary when I see the 'heart flutter' sign in the guidebook and although the top isn't that well protected it was not a bad finish.

Great Route, plenty of variety - Jams, bridging and a fine arrete to finish. Very well protected. Would give it HS 4b not VS 4b.

detoured to go up the gully as I was sketchy about the moves near the top and the quality of the rock for a placement.

I bridged the first part and think it would have been harder than 4b had I not done this. The top section felt a bit exposed for a couple of mobves.

when the guide book says the upper part isn't well protected, it means there's no gear in the top 3rd.
