150m, 6 pitches. 1) 5+, 2) 6a, 3) 5, 4) 5+, 5) 5+, 6) 5+. Variations on a theme. Start up Les Dalles Grises, but branch right half-way up the first pitch. Climb direct (crux pitch) to its second stance then cross the original route and head direct up slabs, cracks and grooves for four more pitches. There is a tough right-hand variant (6b) to the penultimate pitch if needed. © ROCKFAX

Climbed the standard route which has one 6a pitch (pitch 2) and the rest is 5+. Really enjoyable route....lots of varied climbing and not very polished given it is in a popular area of hte gorge. Highly recommended.

Good climbing, climbed the 5+ penultimate pitch. Nice runouts on great rock.

Sam went off route and had an epic using quickdraws for gear and running the last two pitches into one.

Bold, long run outs to be expected.the 6b element i ended Up top roping. Friend thought element more like a 6c at the crux. Lead clean onsight up to 6a level.
