βeta: You can get quite committed to this very quickly if you try bouldering out the start. Nice route though

valentinesbabe 30 Jul, 2011 2nd O/S Didn't rate it, not convinced it's worth a star but it was last route of the day and the midges were out so maybe that's coloured my judgement. Quite awkward at the beginning because of the polish. Ended up hanging around on a layback trying to get a cam out of the roofcrack...then ended up with a jam in the roofcrack to get it out then moved out to the bit of a hold before pulling up to the arete. Pretty much all over after that.
