There's a handful of bolts on this route on the some of the blankest sections. Abseil stations equipped from the summit for both sides of the mountain, finding them is a little tricky.
Cut my hand on first pitch, even after applying first aid I proceeded to decorate the entire route with red!

Really should have taken the rock shoes - would have made it so much easier!

Cold start! Couldn't feel my hands and used a bit of French free on the crux. Warmed up once we were in the sun and out of the wind. Only one bolt on the route which makes a nice change.
