Tremendous route, masses of exposure and some loose rock make this a serious lead. I followed the line of the rockfax topo which seems correct but it is definately harder than 5b.

On the upper section, after a rising traverse R/W’s, a committing move gains a slightly suspect block, (sling & additional nut in crack to the left). The blank wall and closed corner above is avoided by stepping R to the aręte, either at the height of the block or one move higher if you are tall. It took me some time to decide that the direct line on the photo-topo was not the way out, & it nearly cost me the route. This is a very good additional variation to ‘The Tool’ armed with this knowledge. Running the route into one pitch is fine as long as you extend your runners well.

A great adventure. Probably good to belay below small overlap to ease rope management.
