UKC Testing - 2014
Hidden - AltLd - 15/Aug/13
Well, where do I start! Got to the route and a pair of experienced Italians were gearing up for the original start. Damn. So, race to pitch 4 via the alternative start (which can be recommended) and we got ahead. Made it to the ledge in about 5 hours which should have helped us get to the cable car on time... Just the Messner Variation left to complete to do...
P.S. Apologies to the Italians for the odd stone fall!

With Messner finish. Brilliant route with excellent, varied climbing. Route-finding easy up to the ledge then a bit more problematic after that, meaning we missed the last bin down.

impressive climb. The lower grade pitches are not really easy. Fantastic day out !

fantastic route, unfortunatly made it within a 100 meters of the summit but then got off route, after two pitches with no gear the sun began to set and we decided to abseil off to the half way ledge and spent a cold night there with no bivvy gear. the next morning we woke up in the cloud so we werent able to continue and abbed the rest of the line. 33 hours hut to hut with 3 sandwiches and a bar of chocolate!!
