In one pitch, 70mtr rope DOES NOT get you to the ground. Great route.

Ran together as one pitch. Fantastic climbing, 3 stars. Rope drag is severe at the tops, found the last clip and chains the hardest as a result.

This would have been a great climb, apart from the fact that the guidebook gives the wrong distances for the pitches. (In the book, it says the first pitch is 14m and the second is 17m.) Therefore, I did it all in one pitch and it was definitely well over 35m in total! After a clean first pitch the rope drag (and nerves) got a bit too much, so I rested on the rope before completing the second pitch. On the way down, had to get to the first anchor and set up an abseil to get down after a massive issue with a tangled rope!!
