105m, 3 pitches. Climb the right facing corner below the corner of The Dagger. Step right on to the rib bounding the right of The Dagger, over an overlap until a hanging stance from a spike at the top of The Dagger corner. Step down and right and onto a short rib then climb the cracked wall above to the terrace.

Incredibly good quality climbing on the second pitch. Probably the best 4c pitch anywhere

First 2 pitches both excellent. Amys first lead on a mountain route. Threw the nuts and some mud at me but otherwise fine

Lead p2 and most of p3. Left some skin behind at the start of p2 when a hand jam went wrong. Left some dots of blood along the rest of the route. One of the best routes I've climbed.

Just topped out as the afternoon showers kicked off. A bit chilly in the wind. The rest of the crag was a wetter than I thought it would be - weeps across most routes.

Beast!!!!!!! And in such an awesome setting. Thought Pitch 1 was a bit sustained for VS, but brilliant climbing. Pitch 2 was one of the nicest pitches I've ever climbed. Stunning route!

Fantastic climb. P2 is outstanding. Loads of gear.

Good route. Descending back to the packs across steep hard snow banks in rock boots was interesting.
