βeta: Jam it if you like, but with a few layback moves and some nice bridging, you can easily avoid any jamming. grin.

Tom Redwood 10 Jun, 2018 2nd O/S Enjoyable bridging, looked for the leader who isn't as lanky as mine that you'd want to spot your gear (if possible), make the tricky move over, place gear and then really go for it because reversing back down would not be fun. If you're over 6'2" then you can reach round the entire arête you genetically lucky bugger aye Vlad?! (Lead with great confidence all the same)
