Easy climbing covered in a thick layer of mud and foliage. The real struggle is fighting through the brambles! Climbed in the dark.

Somewhat loose at the top, muddy in the middle and consistently vegetated.... not the most inspiring climb but not the worst.

Reasonable start although a bit low on good gear passing one or two loose blocks that can be avoided. Once the crack / corner is reached the route becomes really quite good with very good and easily placed protection.

A bit psyched out after backing off Saruman so this felt harder than it probably was. A bit loose and vegetated. Abbed back down Dain from the pinnacle at the top as the path looked a bit hairy!

you can pull the rope through from around the block, but definitly requires two people with maximum effort.

I know it's probably obvious to everyone else, but you can't ab off the pinnacle as the rope won't pull. Walk back and there is a fat tree on the right from which one can ab down the horrid loose gully all the way to the ground.

Si likes to add interest and started as for Saruman from the flake up and then moved left around to left corner face. Good interesting climb all the way.

First climb of the evening, as a warm up. Orthanc is a wonderful triangular outcrop, tapering to an atmospheric belay stance on top of the point. This route follows the left extreme edge, and suffers from loose rock almost everywhere. The rest of the outcrop suffers also to some extent but not as much as Dain. There are plenty of holds and the moves are not hard, but most of the time you are just looking for something stable enough to trust.
