My word, that's hard for 5b! Ended up doing high heel-toe cam on the arete, crimping on crystally edge and slapping away up the arete. Definitely at least a grade harder than 'easy walling' nearby!

A whole lot more 5c than Easy Walling!

Couldn't resist! Finger-ends were paper-thin after a week in Llanberis and the fabulous roughness of the rock on this route tore a strip out of the second finger of my L hand. Might have to take a few days off . . . . nah! This route was a joy to climb: excellent pro (cams) and three lo-o-o-ng reaches for good holds. Thanks to Duncan (?) for helpful observations which were spot-on.
