Serious stuff. If you take the slab direct the whole way (which I did) then it's a bold lead. Small wires and micro cams of BD 000 to X4 0.3 essential to protect this.

route description slightly confusing, both leader and I stayed on the face of the slab between arÍte and crack, and didn't step right onto arÍte 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

Abseiled down first to check that there were in fact gear placements in dirty looking thin crack on the left. Was happy to discover some artificial looking slots for cams. I wouldn't recommend this one unless like me, you had the use of several small cams.
