16m. A worthwhile route taking the left-hand side of The Louisiana Rib. A reachy pull and delicate step from the horizontal break make up the bold-feeling crux.

Just a bit escapable to be really good. I also failed to find anything resembling a fierce pull, just a balancy rock up.

Crux is not really fierce and over a bit too quick for a 2 star route.
JK - 22/Oct/04

I'd agree- no fierce pull but delicate and balancy

A easy to reach slightly hard pull on small crimps whist pushing up on footholds a goat could use form the unstressfull crux which makes you realise you are dealing with an E1 that somehow conned a guidebook writer into thinking it`s an E2

Precarious slab moves and quite run out -- solid E2.

Er... you do know you're supposed to use the arete, yes?

One move wonder on the arete if you can reach for the obvious pinch and use a foot on the arete. Good balance moves before and after, but not much else. Mid-grade E1 5b.

OK, so I may have been off route (face of the slab, not the arete).
Coel Hellier - 05/Mar/07

Pleasant enough, with short-lived difficulties.
Coel - There is a neat, technical HVS, Finger Licking Good, that goes directly up the centre of the slab from the bottom. It feels as hard as Acheron.
