Description

The standard is the squat start from the right edge in the seam and the crystal edge out left. Step onto the quartz crystals and reach left up to a sloping dish with a very sharp crystal in it. It is also possible to crimp a ripple in the sloper as a sidepull and get your thumb on the sharp crystal. Reach right to a seam with a small edge formed by two crystals, then left to a bigger knob and finally right up to a better edge in a seam. You'll match your feet multiple times on the quartz crystals durring this process.

If you are tall or temps are cold you can go straight from the sloper to the second right crimp.

From here the holds get bigger and the angle slackens.

The low lying down star off of the hollow flake definitely seemed hard for V6 to me.

This is B3 from the Mayer & Moret online guide. They give it V3+/V4+ for high/low start.

The Summerscales guide gives the high start V3.

Location

The uphill, north blunt arete from a somewhat low start.

Protection

Pad if that.
