Superb classic climb. Six pitches all very good and memorable. The chimney pitch was straight forward- the continuation groove very technical - the top corner with smashed in warthog was a charachter building experience. Much better than the guide books suggest.

Memorable long day during a short winter day. climb was good (the chimney is alot of thutching up)but made a tad harder with unconsolidated snow (a fair amount of). Pitch black and foggy made the nav back interesting (proper with passing, human taget for bearing...)
