30m. Another quality White Gyll E1. Starting beneath the boot-width crack, ascend to ledges beneath the roof-capped corner. Climb the corner with difficulty until just below its top. A tricky step leftwards allows a resting place and wires to be gained at the foot of a long diagonal crack. Ignoring the crack, step right with a flourish onto the arete and finish more easily above. Insitu ab station on the terrace.

Didn't read the route description. Lost trust in my feet, got cramp, got scared, almost stuck, nut pulled out as I made a crux move. What trad onsights are all about!
