Rockfax Description
The centre of the left-hand wall avoiding the tendency to drift towards the arete as much as possible. Follow the cracks leftwards for the best finish. Gentle for 5c especially for the tall. © Rockfax

βeta: Well if Blizzard Ridge direct start is E1, this is more like E2. Bold start as said and quite sustained above if you avoid the arete the whole way. Felt like a 5c move to me as well, very height dependent though.....Forget the arguments, a great little route either way.

βeta: This is not "mild at the grade", it simply isn't an E2. It is however a very nice E1 5b, albeit with a slightly bold start.

βeta: Bold start - 5b/c friction move with definite ground fall potential. From then on steady to the top - but watch for the block on Blizzard ridge - it has been known to move!

βeta: HVS start and finish with a well protected 5c crux in the middle.no more than soft E1 5c,though worth 2 stars (and you can't help drifting towards the arete at the top - it's where the holds go!)

And at no point do you need to use the holds on blizzard ridge!
