Climb the left wall to the break then traverse round the arete on jams where a powerful move gains the arete, then sprint. Low in the grade but intense for a moment or two. A good but bold Direct Start, E3 5c, laybacks the unprotected lower arete.

Very pleasant, the traverse onto the face and standing up aren't too bad and the finish feels airy but not scary

Pleasant indeed - packs some good climbing into the finish. Traverse around is surprisingly grunty, from there the contrasting balance moves are, as the man says, airy but not scary.

Unsung gem. Until the BMC guide came out and banged on about it, rightly.
