Led PP 2+4. In approach shoes + rucksack + route finding + not much gear + wet patches = felt more like VS!

pitch 2 was a tad interesting for Mike to get up the corner. Minimal gear on the severe section but the upper part is a total blast.
Fiona Reid - AltLd O/S - 19/May/08 with Mike

Off route at the start as not a very obvious line but fine after that. Great to top out right on the summit.

Neil Pacey - AltLd O/S - 20/Apr/08 with Tanya Savage
