JV led p1,3,5 & 8. I struggled with the moves round the rib on p1 & had to resort to aid. Crossing the stream on p.4 was "interesting" as it was in full floe due to the recent rain. We both got a good soaking but soon dried out in the hot sunshine. A memorable experience and a superb route!

Put this to bed after retreating last year. Lead final "crux" pitch, and the waterfall crossing which is a unique experience. One of our team took a good soaking, and we saw a leader refusal from a party behind.

Superb route, great character. Second time on it, so I led the pitches I didn't lead last time (2,4,6,8) whicih includes the main waterfall pitch. Great in such hot weather.
