350m, 10 pitches. 10 pitches: V+,V+,III,IV+,V+,V+,V,V,V,IV+.
Classic route from the 70's, recently re-equipped, small trad rack still useful.
Descent by abseil(check guidebook for details).

A good quality route (TD-) and a nice line that starts in the gully and climbs a rising traverse taking in lots of the crag. A few lose blocks to avoid in the mid pitches, but otherwise a lot of time is spent on good, clean rock and each pitch is nice. It isn't very sustained, with the 5c pitches involving nice sequences of 5c moves rather than whole pitches of 5c and is pretty well bolted where it needs to be. This was our first alpine rock route of the summer and was perfect for getting back into the swing of things. We managed to get up the route in the guidebook time, but the abseil descent was a different matter. The 45m abseil stations are difficult to find. All was going well until the 5th abseil. We were climbing on 50m half ropes (having looked at the topo and seeing the 45m stations) and somehow strayed off the main line to end up on a 60m descent. I ended up 50m below John, hanging on the end of our ropes, with the next station 8m below me. I had to prussic back up until I was back on the rock and then be belayed back up. It took quite a while to sort the situation and get ourselves safely down to the ground. Take care on the abseils if you're going to climb this route and take 60m ropes to give you more flexibility (we climbed on 60s the next day! :)

Great route, done on Tony's 55th birthday. Climbing is all fairly steady and line easy to follow. Abseil descent is a little tricky to locate. 1.5 hour approach and getting ready, 4 hours climbing, 2.5 hours descending, 1 hour walk down. 9 hours car to car.
