The rib is problematical and superb. Escape right along the break into the gully for the problem. If leading, then a runner in the high break is useful for the E1 version. Originally given VS!

Brilliant arete. Bold start, and the crux can be made much harder by sticking vehemently to the arete, but all in all very enjoyable. You will still want to take a single piece of gear for the break, if only for pyschological reasurance!
