Rockfax Description
An all-time favourite taking the line of least resistance up the long slab, down and right of Northwest Arete. Start a grassy ledge below a large left-facing corner.
1) 15m. Move up the corner for a few metres before striking out on a line leftwards up and across the slab to its edge. Make a delicate move up to a ledge and belay.
2) 30m. Gain another ledge above and take a groove-line on the right to slabs that eventually lead to the finishing ledges. © Rockfax

βeta: Pretty sure we belayed from the second ledge, felt more obvious and plenty of gear and space (if rather exposed)… Would have to repeat it to be sure (though would be more than happy to do so!)
