Had a cheeky rest on the crux after getting pumped arranging gear. Great route with interest on all pitches. Goes right until the end.

Led pitch one and three. Last pitch was hard, got a little help with a tight rope.

Perfect condition. Excellent route with interesting climbing on every pitch. Sustain but not too tricky. Found the crux no any harder then the rest of the climb. Route finding might be a challenge without the footprints!

Fantastic route, absolutely covered in powder, which slowed us down a bit. 2nd pitch was particularly good fun. Led P2,4&6.
Ken Applegate - AltLd - 05/Dec/10 with Tony Shephard

great atmospheric outing up some unlikely ground, superb well protected 2nd pitch

Humbling that the first ascent was in 1959! A true classic and another great day out. The second ("groove") pitch was simply beautiful.

Excellent route

Typical big day on the ben. Finished in moon light. Thought it was quite nippy but that could have just been the conditions.
