Has this actually been climbed since it's 1st accent? I had to dig for virtually every single hand and foot hold along with all of the gear placements. Maybe we took the wrong line up the 1st pitch which involved going straight up the slab to the chimney (with some scary vegetation climbing to get established), scrambling up from the left off the grassy ramp may have been easier. Still it's now relatively climbable! The guide suggested stepping right out of the chimney which seemed unlikely. I climbed the slab directly above and went steeply up the groove rather then going round the corner onto the 2nd slab on the left as it was far too dirty (clumpy black moss). Climbing is still fairly serious after the final overhang is passed so we roped it. Descended by abseiling from a tree down the gully.
