Traverse awkwardly right to the easier-angled side of the shallow arete and finish up the still interesting walls. © Rockfax

good route, some great crux moves after steep easy start. On first attempt got scared on upper wall, clipped a thread that was on a route to the right. lowered off it. the rock around the two old threads snapped, my next quickdraw caught me. The lesson - don't trust small threads? Hard route.
