good route!

Tough 'rock over' move at crux. Focus next climbing sessions on keeping toe solid on rock - don't swivel as you loose footing.

Seems much harder than 5c

For the second time of asking I've not been able to get onto the blunt arete...

A nightmare for us, simply unable to see the move that gets you onto the blunt arete without using the shelf to the left (which we decided was not in).
