3 stars surely, brilliant climbing from start to finish. Was very glad we chose to ab in rather than brave the jungle at the bottom!

The old guide talks about scrambling up to the start, I dread to think what that would have been like. A good pitch.

Lovely pitch. Abseiled in and the rope got stuck, ended up having to prussic up the rope to free it.

Ab'ed in and the rope got stuck! eeek.
coffeepot - 2nd - 31/May/10 with jelaby

Valuable lesson not to be forgotten: it's hard to pull a knot across grass. Had to lead on the remaining length of rope, with the ab rope stuck in the corner. Didn't seem to affect much, except I kept trying to clip the ab rope into my gear.
