Climb rightwards (higher is easier) out of the grotty groove to access the sharp arete which gives some technical laybacking.

It seems to be usual to prolong the time spent in the grotty gully (which isn't really that unpleasant!) so giving a route of no more than 6a+. Leaving the gully lower down may well give a route of 6b+ but this doesn't seem to be done very often.

To get the full 6b+ tick, get onto the arete as soon as possible, but it is hard to avoid the urge to bridge back into the grotty groove. Falling off before the 1st clip could result in some nasty nettle-related injuries (!)

Natural sequence gives the move out of the gully onto the arete at the appropriate place.Found "technical laybacking " bit 6B+.Worthwhile route though
