I'm logging this again because it's the only thing I've done in one day less than a year. The start was very wet because it was raining heavily here an hour before, but by the time we topped it was a glorious hot, humid evening. The starting wall could be described as V0 and completely different from the rest of the route. The finish of this route is great. Not another soul at the pass. The last time I climbed anything I was here at the pass with Will. That was a great day too, sadly it was my last day climbing with the great Will. Rest in peace Will.

Porbable climbed with Dave Ritchie and Řyvind Ruden and Nick Collins at some point. Climbed with AndyP last summer on a flying visit from Norway. A bit wet to start, had to come in from the right. good to climb with Andy again. The pass seemed really small. First climbed in 1998.

I've lead this route a couple of times, the finish is good and the route well named. This may be the easiest VS in the world (although see Razors Crack at the Pass) Seconded it on 14.9.07 with Will leading and couldn't get off the ground on the initial headwall with my trainers on so I pulled on the rope! I should keep my mouth shut about 'easiest' VS routes. The finish is good, exposed on big holds, it deserves its stars for this reason.
