CLimbed to the top of the fourth pitch. The pitch is great and well worth doing. It is, however, verging on dangerous. The key hand hold is a chock stone with a load of rubble behind it. There is also a large flake wedged under the overhang, BUT IT MOVES LEFT AND RIGHT! I hate to think the rock fall that would ensue if it came out.

Great route but bad moving flake on P 3

Steve led the easy first pitch & then we baled out because it was too cold & windy

Fourth pitch is at least as good as second & third, so do it!

Great climbing although felt soft for the grade. The fourth pitch is well worth doing.
