I was a little unimpressed with this. I think I used more grass and heather than I did rock. Had a hard time working out where to go, mostly because of the vegetated nature. Great setting and beautiful day.

Quality mountaineering route, worthy of (and benefitting from) more traffic.

I used a self belay system on some pitches and free climbed others, not much gear anyway. The top was tricky, loose and vegetated. A good route with great positions. Bit of a film here:

Loose, but fun.

Adrian and I climbed it in the rain, and thought that it justified being VDiff, possibly HVD at the very outside. Lovely positions and the walk-in was nowhere near as hard as we feared. Not much loose rock either.

Some loose rock, not much gear.

A few bold sections, very suspicious rock especially in the first pitch (worth a test!), that aside, great exposure, gives a serious feel.

Brilliant, fun and remote route giving good sense of exposure. Watch out for rope drag!
