Disappointed to be rained off after only 3 pitches. Had to pull on the draw to get off the ground as I didn't really fancy decking on the first move of the climb. After that the climbing (first two pitches) is reasonably easy but sustained.

Highly recommended. Leaving the ground is hardest move on the entire route!

One of the best routes of the trip. Unfortunately, missed last pitch.
Barry D - 29/Jul/12 with Chris M

Great route, with as others have said, the crux being the first pitch. The latter pitches follow a great arete!

Nice trip, first pitch is quite a bit harder than the rest of the route.
Shaw Brown - AltLd - 19/Jul/11 with David Parker

suggest *** but p1 is significantly harder than the rest of the climb. Some teams avoid this by taking the F5b start of the route which starts to the left "Gazon Maudit". Was back enjoying a beer by 4pm
