Not too birdy, rock improves with height, sustained a the grade. Top pitch fairly conventional E3 on good rock, but very lichened.
Adam Long - AltLd - 26/May/13 with Ben Bransby

So much better than East Face Original: consistent standard throughout, fantastic line and exposure. Got several facefulls of fulmar spew from point-blank range though. Stunk for days.
