Good climbing but poor gear. Assault the lower roof and the more delicate arete above. The start is now harder since the loss of a block on the starting ledge - possibly 6a.

The boulder at the foot has shrunk! What is left has a ‘new’ surface so is possibly a remnant. Not sure of the impact as I’ve only done the route once before, back in 1979.
Now (06/10/08) probably 6a but it was a bit greasy. The rest of the route is pleasant and easy in comparison.

Solo top roped a number of routes including Paralysis, Stroof and Philatus. This has the hardest section (the start) by far. Perhaps I'm too tall!
