Think the grade is fair given the protection, the top pitch is very sustained which is probably why it feels hard for 5a. Great route on great rock.

The hottest day of the year so far and we decided to go for a quick hit early in the morning on a north facing cliff at 1000m. It was bloody freezing! Apart from a damp and grotty first pitch this was a sublime route. Unfortunately I dogged up the crux crack which must be the biggest sandbag ever! Either that or I just have terrible crack technique... Belayed after the crack which was great as I got to enjoy the excellent final section. We added new tat to the top ab station and a new maillon to the belay on Damnation.

Linked first two pitches together to make a 50m pitch up to the base of the main crack. Final pitch (crux pitch)eats a ton of gear! Absolutely immaculate rock and a true three star route
benclimbing - Lead O/S - 31/May/14 with Dan Thomas
Several meters at the bottom of the first pitch were still buried under snow, which made for a sketchy belay station on a semi-detached block floating over a dark chasm. I led what was left of the first pitch Paul led the second into a crowded hanging belay for the tree of us. Joe led the last pitch,we loved it, though it was definitely challenging. Great day out, went for a wee dip in the pool of water at the base of the Corrie (deeper than you would think). Got back to the car just in time to miss the rain.

barney_edin - AltLd - 25/Aug/10 with Andrew, Robert
Done as 4 pitches, I led 2 and 4. Stephen led the crack, a fantastic bit of climbing and hard for the grade. As I left that belay the rain started which led to me slipping off the last move before the final belay, I then led this a slightly different way (still on route). A very good day out if damp at times and soaking at others.

Awesome climb would be a mega classic if it was longer. The first pitch was easy and a wee bit bold the second was a great appetizer for what was to come. The main event was a sweet finger crack, really pumpy but for the feet! I belayed after the crack as Id used all the small/ mead gear. The next pitch was great as well with a tenuous pull through the over lap then up cracked slabs to the ab point.
