12m. Climb the left arete of the deep gully and finish under a large perched flake. Unprotected - care needed.


Not sure how this should be graded. The climbing is easy, Diff or easy VDiff. But there is absolutely no protection! Not a good first lead, but a nice solo.

I'd agree, this is basically a solo, I fiddled for ages to get an opposing 1 and 2 rock in the crack at mid height, only to realise that as I got higher and was moving under the flake that I'd probably hit the ground anyway, due to rope stretch and relative heights of the gear and me.
Nice climb, but keep low under the flake...
