Not too bad when you drag the heel-toe into just a toe-hook Then you to move the right foot out slowly and onto the obvious low edge right of the arete and avoid swinging off!

A tricky little climb. I got close first go but it still ended up taking a few goes. My body could just about get the two holds and manage to toe-hook to stop the swing.. The last move kept throwing me off, but then i used the left sidepull and it went :) very Modernistic :)
