Enjoyed this, found it pretty tough going at points though! Definitely not Diff, pitches felt a lot more like Severe. P2 (the crack) was sopping wet which made it quite difficult! Great atmosphere and length (we did 7 pitches)

Magnificent route.Done in big boots and howling wind, although was the most sheltered route on the crag. Not to be under estimated. No escape once you're on it, and things feel quite serious around the Narrows.

Lead P1&2 as one and then the final 3 pitches to the summit as one. Dont bother with the last 3 pitches. good climbing but too much hassle to descend the whole thing, especially when the ledges are covered with snow and its bloody cold. Walked off by headtorch in pitch dark.

First time used big boots on a mountain diff, quite nervy until got the hang of what worked, especially as parts of the route were wet with seepage after a few days heavy rain. V Nice route though, clean, good gear, some variation particularly the two pitches after the long slab

A bit of an epic due to conditions. Route was wet, polished and very slippery in big boots. We had a down pour just before the crux at the narrows. Would suggest this route is a couple of grades harder in the wet.
