Nice one... Great effort, and video good too.

I'm a bit confused as to whether this is a new route or not?

It's a new left hand finish, branching out from the original, which went around the onto the face + right hand side of the arete to finish. Having watched the video this line looks a whole lot wilder, but I'll leave Craig to comment as I (clearly) haven't done either!

Here's a video of Adam on the FA of the original line, just to compare/contrast:

Looks pretty terrifying (as it does on the other videos,at least he doesn't get the rope snagged....)

Does anyone know if the wallnut 4 that gets mentioned is reachable from One step beyond?

Thanks. Was wondering if it'd get a new name and grade, or just be 'The Keswickian Left Hand Finish', same grade.
