Excellent route, really varied. Went a little off route before the top crux and had to do a diagonal abseil to get back to the line. The last VI+ pitch (pitch twenty-something overall) was quite exciting when knackered!

So, Vinatzer completed. Pulled over the starting overhang and commenced on a number of pitches of slab wandering. I'd say about 80% of the time we weren't sure if we were on route, or where the route should be, or where we were. Upwards we go! Crux 1 was uniquely positioned. Intimidating, technical, balancey but not strenuous wall climbing on pockets, never quite sure if on route or not, never quite sure where the next piece of gear or belay would be, 500m of air below. Mind. Blowing. Neil describes the rest >>
