Lovely. As others have said, the crux is probably not the crux, some of the laybacks and slabs are quite pokey.

Waited about 1.5 hours at base for unexpected rain to dry out. Got to top of pitch 8 to be greeted by thunder, lightning and heavy rain. Never abseiled so fast!

Lead pitches 3,5,7-14. Thought the top 6a pitch, and some of the 5c slabs were harder/bolder than the 6b face climb breaking out from the crack corner. The plasir guide is wrong only recommending friends 1-3, many small cams required!

Excellent route. Led all the pitches. I'm sure both 6a+ pitches are harder than the "6b" pitch crossing the wall of the corner.

One of the best climbs I've ever done superb quality. Used an 80m rope to link pitches and got to the top in under 3 hours, great day totally spent at the end of it.

A great climb though not quite in the Vestpillaren/Luna Nascente/Salbit West Ridge category. Probably one of the easiest routes of the trip which made it funnier when I slipped off the first 4b moves and returned to the ground quickly. Also went off route onto something hard near the top and took a good lob. If you follow the actual line it's about E1, though you might find the cruxes being the E1 4c slab pitches (5c+ and 5b+) rather than the E1 5c (6a+ and 6b) pitches. You'll be good at laybacking by the top too and leave plenty of time and daylight for the descent, it goes on a bit! Great end to a great week and stunning alpine views all day....

Went wrong way at end of P6, climbed 6c groove for 15 metres. Ab back to P7 belay, went the right way. Heavy rain started at end of P7! Must go back to finish.

Really pleased as this was the route i came to do. Quality granite and an afternoon ascent after walking in after the rain gave in. Learnt that somebody had fallen off earlier in day and hurt themselves quite badly - helicoptered out. glad we didn't know. Was a bit wet but not too bad. Some waulity pitches. E1?

Probably the best rock route I have ever done, in just 4.5 hours! Absolutely superb, a shame it isn't in the UK. It is actually only 6a+ (6a obl), not 6b, but is really more like E1/2 - the bolts are only every 15m or so and you need a trad rack.

Four and a half hours on the route - completly knackered on the walk out - don't really like laybacking!
