A great route in great condition. Apart from a few ledges on the first pitch the turf was bomber. Cracks mostly ice free. Crux pitch packed a real punch although found absolutely nothing like "two teeth" and a "flake handrail" but followed the line everyone else seems to climb. Crux is well protected apart from last few metres which is hard and runout; if the cracks were iced it would be very serious. About 180m of lovely grade III ridge romping to the top after the difficulties. write up here:

Hard graft in poor and wild conditions. A long day.

Superb route and should attract more attention than it does, definitely a Patey route.
