Nice route. Protection isn't great. Spike belay no longer there so continue up steepening wall to next ledge just belay and left of block on pitch 3. Gear here is bomber.
Conan - Lead O/S - 18/Jun/13 with KMC

Poorly protected at first. Smallish friend helpful on first pitch. Led first and second pitch as one - and included start of third pitch. Belayed from the block.

Alternate leads with Rich. Nice mountain multi-pitch. Bit green and wandering but the rock is good, if a little reluctant to give gear.

Led four pitches in 2, Liz led up to Jacks Rake and we then continued up that to summit. Far more wet rock than expected - at least 2/3rds of the route. Difficult route finding and poor gear

guidebook description is poor, gear and first belay are poor, better to run pitches 1 &2 together as second belay good. Oh, and rock is a bit wet and slimy in places In short:not over enthused pitches 1 & 3 ali, pitches 2 &4 me
