An alternate start to Gandalf, taking the undercut flake to the right. It joins Gandalf at the base of the groove.

Rested on gear and then moved to Gandalf

Horrible. Gears tricky to place and the moves arn't all that great. Go do Gollum again instead.

Not nice! Awkward moves, and poor gear. Def hard at the grade

Backed off in '09 because of wet holds. Good route.

Super safe this time, guess I just couldn't place gear back then!

Had just seconded Gandalf so not true onsight. Steep moves up flake then delicate move to gain the good foothold on Gandalf. Worth a star

Went a little slowly trying to make the most of the limited good gear options. So felt quite pumped. Great route, shame the top is a tad loose.

Losing the light, difficult to see footholds, faced with a hard crux move above not great runners. Backed off; will return in full daylight.

Fell from top of flake. Ended up near slab. Totally mashed my finger when it ripped off the edge it was holding. blood everywhere. I'll be back to get this one, lovely route!

Made a real hash of the first (hard section), then bottled it when it got to the easy section (where it joins Gandalf)

Tried this on lead - my nearest gear fell out at the top of the flakes and I froze, ended up a couple of feet off the deck (landed on the slab). Seconded it clean, really nice moves.
