Great route with really nice climbing and situations (although 1st pitch not up to much). Done in 5 pitches. Extremely windy on arÍte. Many very loose blocks up onto Fingers - like climbing a Jenga tower!) In boots.

Climbed in 3 pitches (40m, 60m, 40m). Believe we started on Fingers Direct on first pitch. Ended up belaying off an insitu peg on the slabs. Required a few delicate moves in approach shoes. Enjoyed top pitch over/around fingers - but a few loose blocks in places. Blowing a gale. Not much fun topping out.

Started up Direct Route by mistake and backed off due to lack of gear. (Should have been further left and lower down). Dave then led first and third pitches and I led second. Persuaded Dave to lead 4th pitch even though it was my turn so that I could have photo taken threading the fingers! Thanks Dave!

Snow at the foot of the route and line lost somewhere in the middle. I lead the lower pitches and topped out, Pippa then lead up between the fingers.

Snow at the bottom so may not have started in quite the right place, and then may not have gone quite the right way up, but bridged the fingers at the end and good climb all round.

Some big loose blocks towards the top.

A nice route. The day was cold and damp and the first pitch was a steep bog. Once you get out of the bog and onto rock the climb unfolds before you. You can climb a lot of this route without thinking too much about the moves. The final headwall is maybe V. Diff but it is only a couple of feet high and if you don't fancy it you can easily skirt round to the left into a broken gully. Climbed in approach shoes.
