Colin Scotchford - AltLd - 28/Jul/15

Cracking route. Had an epic though and fell whilst leading chimney pitch, smashing my face open! Brilliant top out and spectacular views. Glacier dodgy in the afternoon though.

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!
rockstoned - AltLd - 02/Aug/12 with Pierre

Really should have taken the rock shoes - would have made it so much easier!
Tim Sparrow - Aug/12 with Geoff Thomas

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.
