Nice crux — rock-over on a pebble and reach for the break. Got to the top, but cheated at the start by using the arrete for the first move...so not really finished.

A really nice route albeit an eliminate (avoid the block to the left and the lower right arete). Worthwhile doing.

I watched four people climb this route before trusting myself to lead my first VS. Careful up the slab to the break, place some gear then haul up and over. The long run out to the top up the scoop tests the confidence, but once you're up there you might as well carry on and finish. I enjoyed this so much I went to Three Pebble Slab the next day and led it clean onsight.
