The square-cut arete is climbed on its left side and becomes harrowing towards the top. Staying with the arete is best though trending left is an easier option. Escape right or do April Arete.

A super little solo, feels longer because of the climbing and position. Pad out the landing with rucksacks (or a mat) to prevent an unpleasant fall.

The wall to the left is another fun solo - E1 5b ?

Quite commiting near the top of the arete. Solo to the left is only HVS I reckon.

The definitive guide gives a fairer assessment of what to expect from both routes (as solos without mats - alternatively would both make good highballs) - unless you're of the outdated mindset where ankle-breaking groundfall routes should be undergraded compared to their protected counterparts.

Very nice climbing and line on this one.
