Cold & windy, in spite of the sweaty walk up.Poorly protected 4c (P2) is usually HVS? especially from a low belay. Not sure how on route we were after p2, but we were there or there abouts. Bill lead the 4c pitches.

Excellent route. Gear's a bit sketchy in places which adds to the over all excitement.

Excellent climb. I agree with VS 4c, not the MVS of the FRCC guide. For a start, the rib on pitch 2 is quite serious, being technically tricky (4c) and poorly protected.
