βeta: As far as I can tell, this route starts from a powerful layback position on the arete, trying to gain the arete where the thin break is in order to make a long reach rightwards to the "hidden" pocket. The groove is more harrowing than suggested!

βeta: It's the wall right of Fo'c'sle arete. Bit further on from the brigand which is the crack that is near impossible to get into!

βeta: Where does this route go? The guide book topo shows the following route "The Brigand (E4 7a)". From the description I couldn't really see where you were meant to climb.
