Nice route. Scary p1, good climbing on p2. Direct looks ace.

Conan lead P1, Giles P2 and I got P3. Protection thin on P1 but abundant on P3. Giles took the bypass on P2 to avoid the initial corner, which I took direct on second. Nice climbing; holds all there, though often not obvious. Top pitch was a bit damp inside the chimney but fine on the sides.

What an amazing route. How can anyone think otherwise. All three pitches had really nice climbing. At least 2 stars 1st pitch quite poorly protected though but good gear after that.

Missed out p1 by traversing in to bottom of p.2 as per Cascade Direct (for some reason - perhaps wet?) Led p2 (5a), JAB led p3.

Attempted Cascade Direct but it was filthy and pegs looked rotten. Escaped up the original.
