Contemplating the steep wall of Highlander, 5.10b

Description 

Start left of the arete and climb up easily to clip the 1st bolt. Move past this and clip the 2nd bolt and then make thin moves up the steep wall to a rounded mantelshelf and the 3rd bolt.

Finish with a final mantle to reach the anchors.

Left side of the central arete


Protection 

3 bolts, 2 ring anchors

Take care with the flakes out left. They are not solid and shouldn't be relied on. The route follows the bolts and is solid.

Fingery moves up a short steep wall gain a rounded break and a mantle (to the right is easier) and then easier moves to the top - fun.
