A magnificent trip up this massive wall. The climbing is remarkably sustained with a crux right at the top. © Rockfax

Always steered away from this one due to it's wandering nature, but with a selection of extended quickdraws it doesn't feel that bad at all.
Very wondering but quite good moves.
Pretty much onsight: had mega rope-drag at the top so grabbed the chain to clip. Did it totally cleanly after - having somebody remove the 2 rightmost qds helped a lot with the drag. Double ropes would be good as well!

Managed to below the final line of bolts, but from thereon there was a lot of resting.

Flashed but grabbed the belay
bit of vague beta helped alot, did the middle section of flight path i think.
