One of the few routes unaffected by rockfall hereabouts. The E3 corner to the left was desperate and Bob failed on it.

An excellent climb, quiet sustained but with reasonable gear. I hadn't checked the guide and thought it was only VS!

Unquestionably 5c and ** as the votes strongly suggest. Fingery crux took me ages. Predictably the Brigadier did it first time.
Ian Jones - Lead O/S - 24/Apr/11 with Major Daniel Moore, Brigadier Sir Roger Benton

great sustained climbing. E2 5c.
