Really cool route, more abseiling than climbing though! Long walk in as the lifts are closed for the off season.

Missed out the last needle as Chris' feet were disintegrating but still an amazing day out - did the optional tyrolean traverse.

Great fun, the tyrolean was novel if a bit short. Could be very time consuming if there wasnt a party ahead to catch the rope.

Got lost on the walk in, did the first pitch, abbed off the wrong way and had a terrifying experience with a dodgy anchor then backed off due to bad weather
