The best climb on site: pumpy edges, then sequency crimps, then balancy to make the crest. The complete package. Should have at least done it cleanly on top rope . I'd want to have this dialed perfectly before trying for the lead (1st to 2nd clip would be very nervy).

After a discouraging practice turn, I was very pleased to make it up this entire route. Superbly atmospheric moves up the arete, followed up by haaard slab moves on tiny features. Thanks to a patient belay partner, and mad props to Kym for doing it clean on lead.

The crux requires finesse to get through, not to mention a couple of serious crimps. After that, it changes up into a slab requiring balance and nerve. Recommended!
