16 15 BUMBLE BEE

I am not sure we followed the route properly. On pitch one, the right side of the arete became more than 13 after ~20m. I could guess the unstable block and could not find the piton belay. So I went to the left side of the arete to a comfortable ledge above tree with 2 wobbly blocs. 35m, 13 itch 2 was very dirty, the cracks were full of ground and vegetation. I bailed and abseil from the top to the stance in order to do the pitch top-rope. I stayed on the arete the whole way. I felt more lie a 16 and the protection was possible after a great deal of cleaning.

Great clean route. Second pitch definitely not a 13. Suspect that a typo was introduced in the translation from old to new grades. Maybe this is a F3 and not an E3.
