FA. D.Whillans 1952. An atypical Whillans route.

Ticklists: Peak Rock/6/ The Emergence of Joe Brown and Don Whillans.

Andrew Sloan 27/Sep Lead O/S

This was poorly protected where it mattered and a complete sandbag for VS. I've climbed several easier E1s this season. Climbed as one long pitch; horrible top out.

Left a sling + screwgate at top of climb, went back for it after doing another route and it was gone... Cleaned this route a couple of years back, hadn't got round to doing it until now. Not bad.

Easier than Froth or Pearly Gates, pretty good though.

Led P1 but belayed just below the crux because it looked like a good stance. Should have done it properly.

Upper pitch taken corner direct, this is at least 5a and the gear is rubbish for first 2/3rds of pitch so HVS would be fair.
