A superb route, steady at the grade. Care needed with abseil down to prevent rope catching. We descended in two shortish followed by one 70m abseil. Surtana valley really can be silent except for bird song.

Great route, with steady dificulties. Pretty view and the whole valley. Interesting formations on top of the rock. Everything that climbing is all about for me.
