tried to do official first pitch, damp and seemed sketchy. Led half of crescendo but backed off the polished bold wall. Kev finally got us to the main pitch but it took a while for him to find the way up to the pinnacle. Really good moves on pinnacle and above. Shame I couldn't quite hold on to get on and off the pinnacle nor could I pull my way up the final wall....not one to rush back and lead just yet!Lessworkmoreclimbing - AltLd - 04/Aug/14 with Kev

Kept my onsight but didn't do it particually well, spent a long time doing things like extending runners and placing gear. I also spent a long time working out how to get off the pinnacle. Still great fun though!

Got a total spanking! Wonderful climb though. Perhaps not wise to do as the 21'st and final pitch of climbing that day. From the chalk there seems to be a lot of people traversing in to the pinnacle from little chamonix, Don't do this, the lower half of the pitch is very good too.
