Had done the start before but didn't find that bit easy this time and took a few goes to get the boulder problem start.

3 or 4 false starts on bottom move despite soloing Wild Things immediately before probably due to low blood sugar. Went easily after 5 mins rest and some food - called it an o/s, though maybe a RP?

Some great moves up the arete, a little balancy and makes you concentrate, kind of wish I'd saved it for the lead

Direct start, after doing the other 2 routes here. One hand on arete on left for one move which is probably out. Don't care, just fun after the slab.
