The second pitch is best started from a belay to the right of the flake to allow the leader to get the best gear.

Scared! I found the opening move in P2 was hard – 5b. But apparently I made the sequence completely wrong… Good route.

We soloed up to the belay just right of the flake. Bit scary in the wind, but I got 2 slings on the arete, first held down with my shoes, the second with a bunch of hexes! Would have made quite a funny photo.... Fave move was stepping off the top of the flake onto the headwall. Massively cool route

johannes 12/Jun Lead rpt

One of those very rare occasions where I used the old trick of taping slings in place so they can't get lifted off

fuzzysheep01 24/May Lead O/S

Some route - mind-blowing exposure. Reasonable slings on the aręte gave me the balls to go for the (pretty straightforward) moves.

Yikes!! Very exposed, a wee bit loose in places and lacking in meaningful gear where it counts. Best candidate for HVS 4b I've done. Three stars for being so different though.

John 'B' Hutchinson 20/Jun/11 Lead O/S

Absolutely brilliant fun. Huge exposure and not much gear but easy moves on massive holds. Just a very cool feature. First pitch looked like a waste of time, you can just scramble or ab to the base of the second pitch from above. Can't recommend this climb enough as it has bags of what it's all about - fun!.
