Very thin, very sustained, very technical bridging. Eases off once the ledge at 2/3 height is reached. Peg is old but can be backed up. [Cleaned July 2014, accessing the ledge is now easier via an in situ rope just left of welcome to the cruise]

Only just at the crux. burning calves. Route was clean apart from cobwebs, and rock generally a bit scrittly.

Tried this again as the route was sheltered from very strong winds and also because I find it so difficult. Tried it 2 times. :o)

Hidden - 2nd dnf - 09/Jul/09

gets right tricky straight off the bat, with minimal thin gear. Took me a while to work out the moves. Upper section is much easier.
