This climb is in 11 logbooks, and on 5 wishlists.
Ice and snow on route after many days of bad weather. Climbing Partner got altitude sick. In total the ascent was too slow. We turned back after the first 6b pitch (about 1/3 of the route).

No bowel issues for Andy this time; however, route finding was not our strong point. Definitely on route for the crux upwards. Good to get a route on the grand cap done.

Climbed left of the line on pitches 3-5 by accident, which still provided good climbing.

Hmm... gave me sharp end for a long wide layback since I was "English trad climber"... and this had no bolts... problem was I had no gear big enough... terrifying... pumped and gripped looking at massive factor two on very skinny half ropes. shit myself. merci mes amis, merci :-)
