Climb just left of the arete to a break, move right and layback the arete. Low in the grade though harder for the short.

A good route for your first HVS. Installs plenty of cofidence in yourself.

friendly hvs. rockover on the layback and thats about it.

There is a crucial difference after the rockover move if you stick to the arete, which it states in the route description and do the move (very thin and necky) compared with two feet to the left from where you can reach the break above without doing a move. The grade is totally different according to which way.

you can do a boulder problem start on the arete at about 5b for a slightly more pure line but the route is a bit eliminatey. not to be recommended as a first HVS

VS 5a if you do it slightly left, E1 5c if keep to arret, not a very good route. Try Scent the slab in corner to left E1 5B , not in guide but a better route.

Found the middle bit very reachy & quite hard, but I'm only 5'9, maybe only VS for the tall

The natural line is start on the arete, move left at the break to climb the wall moving right to the easy arete above.
