Long! 1200m from the bottom of the pillar to the top of the Tacul (800m for the rock pillar)
Paul Collins - AltLd - 03/Aug/15 with Liam

Pretty massive day but topping out at sunset seems par for the course on this one. Just over 15 hours for the actual route. Every time you think you're nearly there, there's another section of climbing to do! Route finding is quite tricky near the top.

Dropped my rock shoe on 5th pitch so climbed with one shoe and one boot. Weather turned in, spent night 50m below the summit, still can't feel my feet!!

A very long route, and you have to carry alpine boots all the way to the summit to get off. Worth it though. Take lots of water, or a stove, it's a long day.
