First climbed by John Sherman around 1988. A critical hold broke on the arete eventually, and the crux went from V6 to V10, after Sharma spent nearly an hour working out the move around 2001. I had the pleasure of witnessing both ascents of this classic line.

Yesterday a key foot broke, it's still there but half the size. Maybe the problem will live up to its original rating of v10 now.
