bloody hell, the traverse is fun to say the least, however the run out is big and you have 4 M to go up the arete before there is placable gear to mentsion.... im pushing my grade at VS but missispi butress, hergrevess original and high neb butress direct seemed to be honest fun to this, however when i got to the top i was over joyed... enjoy

Definitely in the "tough for VS" category.

Pretty hard for the grade but a really really good route - presumably it has been overlooked before as it has been considered a cop-out on Archangel - but for a VS or HVS leader this obviously isnt the case. It is in a simialr vein to Ellis Eliminate, but is considerably better! Worth 3 stars. (apart from the first 2 moves)

Surely HVS? I was a good deal more comfortable leading Fina than seconding this!
