Lovely problem with rewards for good hand placement choices. Interesting at the top. Needs a cool head.

Awesome problem. Grade belies the difficulty, though figuring out the beta is the main challenge.

Did all the V0-V1s in Langdale guide and this was by far the hardest and most painful. Came back to it after deciding to warm up elsewhere. Sneaky time killer while Magda trekked up to Stickle Tarn.
