Led P1 & 3+4 together. P3 isn't that hard, although the fall would be quite unpleasant if you messed it up. P4 is where the stars are, great 4a climbing.

Very intimidating 3rd pitch but once you decide what your going to do and commit it's not too bad. Might put it as 5b. Me,KG,Me,KG Pity about pitch 2 but the rest of it is very good.

This route came as a bit of a shock as it was only given severe in 1974. And I didn't have much gear either. I still have nightmares about pitch 3.
