4 out of 5 stars led

A nicely delicate route up the right hand side of the nose. The detached block is firmly wedge and the grroves have just enough holds to retain interest. The final crack is awkward but not hard. Protection is mostly small to medium, and can be a bit run out. As pro cracks are shallow care must be take to avoid lifting gear out with trailing feet.
