Struggled up the first few moves (eventually) and then wandered round and up the slab. Don't really care if I went off route. Harder for the short.

Bouldery start on nice layback moves up to an under pull and out to the arete before entering the crack and a nice airy finish up the arete.

Hard boulder-problem start then eases after that with a balancey move on the slab higher up. The start gave me major disco-leg. The first piece of gear is quite a way up and after the crux - could be E1
