A bold route taking an excellent line on great rock. Climb leftwards to the arete. Arrange protection at half-height (reportedly placement has gone) then confidently follow the arete to the top.

This felt E1 22 years ago and E1 yesterday.

Good route but definitely not one expects from the description - more sustained and technical than merely bold. There are loads of small wires the whole way up - a few of them are even good.

easy route not really that bold. gear at half height is bomber.
dylan burgess - 12/Mar/07

the bomber gear placement at half height is no more, the block the placement went behind has come off!
