Enjoyable climbing up the slabs to the R. of Crescent Climb. Very worthwhile despite the grassy appearance.

Nice route, especially after the morning epic we had where I went up the completely wrong route (which doesn't actually exist in any guide books). Needless to say it felt enjoyable (and very safe after the last route!). First pitch was very wet but has massive holds. Descending down Jacks Rake with head torching before camping near the tarn.
