A super route which is well worth the effort required to get to the start. Follow Javelin Buttress to the thread, and spare a moment to remember that this was the last runner on the first ascent! Move left towards the arete and climb the shallow groove of 'the blade' to a mediocre wire or two. From here reach out right and tetter onto the arete of the blade - bold and precarious. Easy ground leads to the top.

seconded this yesterday, wont comment on the grade as i didnt lead it but its a tricky 5b move with big fall potential as no gear near by.
