springfall2008 8 Jul, 2017 AltLd O/S Lead to the rock spike, partner finished off as per yogi which turns out wasn't the correct finish (Mr Ranger finishes up the arete) - The bottom is well worth a star. Some bold moves low down on the slab, and then well protected up the crack the ledge.

Good climb, was a bit wet and needs a bit of cleaning.
