180m, 5 pitches. North Route Direct - direct
Start as the guide-book but climb the groove throughout in about three pitches - about 120 metres. Crux is a steepening at about 90 metres [guide book alternatives appear to avoid this by a ridge on the right]. Finish up easier section of ridge above. IV/4. Worth a star or two.

Ticklists: Great routes in the Coe.

Good first route for the season! Happy with this. Wasn't fully frozen so made for it being upper end of the grade but certainly nothing crazy!! Bring on 2013/14 season.....

Might have done bits of North Route but it certainly felt at least grade III. A good understarred route.

North Route Direct 'Direct'? Climb the groove direct for about 100 metres, with a steepening [4] at about 70m. Then by the ridge left or right, more easily, to the top. **

We think this is the route we did. We climbed the chimney/scoop to the left of the arete on dry rock. We then went left above and scrambled to the top. Not in great condition after a thaw. Black butresses, mediocre snow/ice.
