The wall just right of the arete with a borehole has 2 (staple) bolts, but needs gear too. Nice, but loose towards the top.

It says E2 5c in my guide, but it's probably on the easy side of that.
Nice climb though.

Now has a lower off (which makes the top moves much easier to protect or even avoidable should you choose).

Been back and done it again and it feels more like HVS now. Easy E1 - hard HVS? Still a very nice climb though.

Fully bolted now at about 5+

A bit disappointed to find this route now bolted (and probably weighing in at 6a). The route has been climbed regularly so why change things now? There are far better candidates for retrobolting nearby - Compromise and Spectrophotometry for example.
