250m, 8 pitches. 6a free, 5c obl.

Nath93 27/Aug AltLd O/S

A fun route with some nice positions, hardest move was UK 5a avoiding the 6a+ wall at the top. Looks like it has been rebolted quite recently as most were in good condition. The bolts almost ruin what would otherwise be a great trad route...

Difficult way finding on the last pitch - improvised the anchor with a sling, traversed the ridge to the col, abseiled off a 60m rope and descended scree path on foot

blood all over belay at bottom of pitch 6, rocks falling everywhere with some close misses, abbed the wrong way resulting in steep gulley descent

First 5 pitches before the rain/hail set it, the climbing is good, route finding is tricky as the bolts aren't all the same type. You can ab from R4 to the big ledge (i.e. pitches 3 & 4) in one with 60m ropes, just. Very atmospheric climbing in thick clouds.

Had lost my lid earlier in the week so was impressed when we cheekily jumped on the route at the ledge in front of two very polite and generous French chaps; who used the slight delay for a relaxed smoke. cheers guys.

Last lift up after chere couloir in the morning. Complicated climbing near top, but steady till then. Not the best on the buttress, but a nice sunset climb. Walked down in 1 hour to road.

Pitch 1 is very thinly bolted, but nowhere near F5b in grade. The climbing gets better the higher up you go. However, it feels like a lot of the F6a top pitch has fallen off.

Scrappy route, bit of climbing with alot of scrambling. 5min approach from the Index lift is great but suggest much better routes can be found elsewhere...

Good climb which dries quick after rain. Started late (lazy start and huge wait for ticket) so nobody else on it, but did have to endure the walk down. Bit snowy on the ab out.
