Got a bomber nut in for the traverse and the moves seemed easy - perhaps more like HS 4b for longboys? Good regardless

Didn't want to commit with the gear I had, moved back into chimney and out onto Flagstaff's Innominate

Rob_Morris1996 25/Mar TR rpt

Used Adam's belay from Flagstaff's Innominate to do this route on second/tr, went fine going for the tech I didn't want to commit to, annoying!! Will come back to lead!

Nut or small cam looks possible before the crux move. The arete is solid once you reach it.

straightforward VS climbing and its VS in the definitive too. Nice route though, its going on the soloing circuit :)

Nice, one committing, move then its all over. Never a HVS. Probably closer to HS if you're tall and can place the good gear before moving.

Seconded it after Rob had lead the "Falstaff's Innominate" so i could let him know what it was like, as he wasn't convinced by it. Wish i had been more selfish and lead it, as its really nice!
