The main arete gives good, well-positioned climbing. Strictly speaking, the crack should be avoided, but this is a bit contrived.

Nice enough, althought the climbing is overshadowed by the beautiful quartzy patina at half-height - worth doing just to see that!!

Not a good route, very unsatisfying somehow.
Fiend is right, the rock crystals are the best bit about it.

Avoiding the crack on the right (as mentioned in the guide) requires discipline and blinkers and is far harder than 6a.

Surely not, there are holds on the edge of the arete that you could use of course!

6a, reasonable climbing at its grade

There appears to be much confusion about the actual route here. Personally I went for that right hand crack , and I considered that to be plenty tough enough.
