A super route which is well worth the effort required to get to the start. Now follow Javelin Buttress to the thread, and spare a moment to remember that this was the last runner on the first ascent! Then move left towards the arete and climb the shallow groove of 'the blade', pulling out onto its right arete proving both bold and precarious - to easier ground.

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.
