Techincal, sustained climbing up a central crack to an obvious 'post-box' slot before stepping right to sloping holds on the arete (crux) making bold moves up this to a large spike, finish up and right more easily from this. Savour every move!

Alasdair Fulton 3 Jul Lead rpt 10 years since a bad attempt at following Cobes up. Absolutely no memory of any off it. Kind of retro-flash I'd say. Harder moves more runout than I was expecting.

Ross Barnes 25 Jun, 2013 Lead dog James lead to just past the crux then came down. Pulled the ropes, I lead up with gear in, rested before the bold upper section and then finished it off. A Pink point dog I think...
