Climbed in the shade with a crazy wind.Topped out in the sun then the pony track down. Climbing in two pitches instead of three is an option ... First time I've had to warn my climbing partner that there's ten...five...one metre of rope left-bout 30 cm by the time i heard 'safe'! A great climb and moves. The gully is an option if dry-the top wall was a bit crumbly but 'doable' if you want the summit and sun.

Watch out for a few loose bits!

Definitely 'interesting' as the guidebook hinted (I'd forgotten how to interpret older guidebooks). We were advised not to top out (due to horrific loose bits) by another party on the route so abseiled from the end of the VS bit. Ropes got stuck on pulling so climbed P2 again in both directions to free them. Still, good adventure VS!

finished to top of the crag via a 4b, 3c and 4a pitch. Good route finding will find you at the top without any looseness and good reasonable climbing.
