Had to ab off after crux as partner was bolloxed. He tried to Prussik up to me but his grip was gone. Disappointed not to finish especially after climbing the 6a pitch which was totally overgrown and as a result felt harder than 6b. Mayb 6c. Hardest pitch iv climbed.

The longer 6a pitch on the left is a bit grassy. Recommend traversing to the 5c+ on the right instead, or bringing a trowel. Superb climbing until the last 2/3 pitches - chossy and forgettable.

A great climb, 3hrs to get to the base of the route, not 1hr 30min like the guide book suggests. Fairly tough as well maybe E2.

Approach took far longer than the guidebook says, had an absolute epic, 32 hours on the mountain, the last 15-20 hours with no food or water. Still enjoyed ourselves thoroughly though :D Lead 6a and 5c+ pitches.

Great climbing and superb feeling of being in a 'sea of rock'. Be careful of knocking loose stuff from the very top (easier) pitches.
