Webster 6 Jun, 2014 2nd O/S route description slightly confusing, both leader and I stayed on the face of the slab between arête and crack, and didn't step right onto arête which looked even harder and bolder? gear is shockingly bad until above the crux which is at least 10m up so a serious lead. some "thank fuck" positive holds appear soon after the first good gear
