afterthesend 28 Apr Lead O/S Bit of a weird one. Used the tiny seam on the arete to stand up then tiny pinches at the top to reach over the top and clip the chains. Not sure how it goes at 7a using only stuff strictly left of the arete if the arete isn't in.. Seems quite a contrived line and would probably work better at about 6b/+ going right to the anchor of Bigus...

jezb1 18 Mar, 2017 Lead O/S Do able using the arete but staying left at 7a ish, avoiding that and taking the headwall direct seems nails. This would be miles better as a 6b+ ish route finishing up Biggus.

Dandan 12 Nov, 2011 Lead O/S Top seemed very eliminate, I did it with relative ease staying well within what I would consider the 'line' and it seemed a bit too easy for 7a and at odds with the description, guess I wasn't direct enough...
