Bold and fingery climbing up the left-hand arete of the face. No side-runners at this grade. Wires in the upper left-hand crack of Dawn knock the grade down to a still scary E3 5c.

It would be better to grade it E4 and not mention the side runners

Surely this is 3 stars, sustained, bold and fingery and up a striking feature

E3??? definately. Really quite scary at the top. Dont messup the last move and nearly miss the top. It will scare you silly. If you fall from the last moves you could hit the ledge at the bottom of Christeena. A great buzz afterwards though!!
