Hidden - AltLd O/S - 25/Mar/14
ASCENT: Some route finding difficulties as pitch lengths given are mostly too long and it is perfectly possible to do fewer longer pitches here as plenty of belaying opportunities. Ended up doing a harder looser variation higher up but still good although the harder routes in the area appear less vegetated.
DESCENT: No problem abseiling off back in 2 abseils with single 70m rope, would have needed a third with a 60m. Much better, if you have double ropes, to abseil back down the west face off shiny bolts and chain which you can find at the same point on ridge, this brings you down to big ledge and avoid the steep scree slope at the back.

Very good route. 8 pitch Trad (VS). Alt leads but Lead the top two harder pitches. Top pitch is exposed and excellent.

Lead 1,3,5 &7. We backed off Delicatesan, but this saved the day. Done with 5 nuts and slings, but adequate fixed gear so safe.
