Misha 12 Aug Lead O/S Short roping practice. Guided in descent. Starts more or less below the Cantilever. Good short roping ground, then trend L from the spur of the ridge before dropping into the gully. Long downclimb off a spike to another spike and a shorter downclimb off that. Bit of easier ground gets to the chockstone. Lower off a spike (use a belay device as it’s steep and the spike is small). Was wet so I half downclimbed, half abseiled but could have downclimbed if dry. Then long lower off two cams but would be ok to short rope if dry. Easier ground leads to a final rock band which we bypassed on grass skier’s R as it was tricky and there were no decent belays.

meliasen 31 Oct, 2015 AltLd Wet, challenging. My first time doing a graded scramble. We ended up doing a bit of a mashup of the gully and the f3 to the right. Couldn't commit fully to the f3 as the rock was just too slimy and slippery.

ianbowles 1 Jun, 2013 Solo O/S Glad to read some of the comments here, chockstone step quite a challenge, thought the 1* would be ok, much more difficult than the other 1* I have done, its quite an exposed step as a solo, being spotted would have helped a little, but still a scary propect. Some exposed ledges / commiting scrambling further up too. Was very pleased to finish.

Gerry_Doncaster 23 Jul, 2011 Solo First time I did this one, I found the chockstone move very hard. Second time around, it was much easier as I found a much better way of doing it. Use the jugs on top to and smear up the small slab then make an exposed but easy step left to pass the chockstone. Maybe just about a Grade 2 move, certainly nothing more. There is plenty scope for making the upper part of the route more interesting if you take everything direct. A decent scramble.

mysterion 1 May, 2011 - Certainly not grade 1 and maybe even harder than grade 2. Chockstone was a steep learning curve - rucksack off then squirm up left [in hindsight chockstone nudges route into grade 3]
