One to come back to. Cruised the early slabs then couldn't climb the crack up to the first roof. Felt about S/HS - too hard for me in boots and with a bag given current state of my climbing! What we did was awesome.

Brilliant route. We were a bit slow (6.5 hours) and thought we'd missed dinner in the hut (luckily there was some left!)
Binder - AltLd O/S - 05/Aug/14 with Toby

A great route with some super exposure. We were a bit slow (6.5 hours), almost missed dinner back at the hut!

Freezing bivi, snowing and very windy at night, blue skys and calm the next day. Mark and warren on another rope ahead, a brilliant warm up route maybe about Server. Climbed in big boots.
