This can be climbed as an alternative top pitch to Aurora but starting from Windy Ledge gives an exciting alternative.
1) VDiff, 10m. Traverse easily to the ledge on Aurora.
2) 4c, 25m. Climb the exposed arete. Not in current guidebook.

Usefully climbed from Windy Ledge via the 'Tiger Traverse'.

Nice route indeed. Very good exposure, adequate prodections , rock a bit chossy in some places, but heck! it's Stoney!

Worth doing just for the initial section up through the roof on numerous old pegs. Disappointingly easy plodding above this.

What happened to the original start?

Great route. Don't start via the lower pitch of Aurora though, very offputting deathly loose wall it is too. Traverse in like they say here, or walk in from the right hand side.
