3 pitches. 1) ((5c)) Leave the col and traverse diagonally up and left. strange and awkward moves bring you onto a ledge where in-situ tat brings a little reassurance. continue left slightly, before easier ground, and the belay...
2) ((5b)) Scary, and airy moves (especially if windy!!) lead up over a small bulge, and then right. After the crux (first few moves), some old metal wire can be seen (and clipped?), continue straight up, on good holds, to reach some in-situ tat. Clip this, then traverse wildly left along the big ledge to the bolt belay which is just around the corner...honestly...
3) ((5c)) Perhaps the trickiest pitch of the three, yet ultimately the most rewarding. Make exposed moves over two bulges, the first easier than the second. Good holds are available, they just take some looking for. Summon all your remaining "cohones", and following the second bulge, an easy scramble, up, diagonally right, around some rosemary, and the belay bolts are eventually reached. Those with an instinct for such things should find the belay no problem. The summit cairn awaits! Take in the views, reflect on your acheivement, and then quickly realise you have a long and reasonably tricky descent ahead.

Found it hard for the grade. Very windy and difficult to see-communicate with climbing partner. Very exciting as last 3 pitches to get to the very top of The Pison. Great experience.

First pitch meanders a bit. Descent is good fun!

Stunning, brilliant, everything about it is just fantastic. Good pitches, slightly scary in places, unrivalled exposure, and the reward at the top is simply incredible. a MUST do.
