After series of showers followed by low clouds and thick fog we decided to bail and abseil down the wet rock after reaching the Broad Terrace in three pitches.

Spectacular situation, we were rewarded with stunning views all the way up. Sandstone start section was wet and slippery in places, but the quartzite section (half to two-thirds of the climb) was dry, though there was lots of loose rock. Great chimney section and some big flakes. The more slings the better for this one - especially in the final 50m of climbing.

wet, slimy, raining. Not keen...

Rain for last 2 pitches.

Stunning location, cracking weather just a shame about the climbing. The quartzite tier was really chossy. Also the first pitch of last tower has a slab section that is in the guide at 4a, well it seemed harder than that.

Wet through sandstone Slab route - went for 4b bulge - intimidating final move but no evidence of previous activity on top out. Climbing quartzite flakes and slab superb - heavwens opened when Sally seconded this pitch - rest of climb very positive in wet
