P1 to the chimney (Paul), P2 short traverse around to the front/right hand side of the Pilar (me) then lead P3 (me) fun tricky mixed climbing straight up the right side of the pillar finishing on the final ice pitch of Left hand (about 50m).

Abbed off from the top of the pillar in the dark...maybe a later start wasn't the best plan after all...Crux felt hard too...maybe I was missing something?
