Stunning day out. A route that has been on my list for 30 years and didn't disappoint. Took a proper UK rack - a full set of wires and cams and used the lot.

Best route of my year, by a long way. Nice mix of natural gear and bolts. We now have a Layback Proficiency Certificate.

So hot, about 35 in the sun. Had a big lob off the top of pitch 3, then ran away. Didn't feel too bad as 2 other parties bailed!

Kevster 07/Jul AltLd O/S

I thought the leader placed pro sections were probably E1 if climbed independently. Small to mid cams and a smattering of nuts. The more run out sections on bolts again were no more than a slate E1 really. Think gnat attack or looking the tube. Abbed down the line for descent was ok but took time. We did really enjoy the route. What more to say?

Led the easy pitches (up to 5b) First climb since November. Had the wrong shoes for smearing, so even the easy pitches were tricky. 2 falls on second, both foot slips. 7hrs to complete. Wasted about an hour due to going the wrong way on 2 pitches and a rope tangle. Nevertheless, a great day out.

Lovely. As others have said, the crux is probably not the crux, some of the laybacks and slabs are quite pokey.

Waited about 1.5 hours at base for unexpected rain to dry out. Got to top of pitch 8 to be greeted by thunder, lightning and heavy rain. Never abseiled so fast!

too much water, thunder and lightning for my liking (at the top of pitch 8)

Lead pitches 3,5,7-14. Thought the top 6a pitch, and some of the 5c slabs were harder/bolder than the 6b face climb breaking out from the crack corner. The plasir guide is wrong only recommending friends 1-3, many small cams required!

Excellent route. Led all the pitches. I'm sure both 6a+ pitches are harder than the "6b" pitch crossing the wall of the corner.

One of the best climbs I've ever done superb quality. Used an 80m rope to link pitches and got to the top in under 3 hours, great day totally spent at the end of it.

A great climb though not quite in the Vestpillaren/Luna Nascente/Salbit West Ridge category. Probably one of the easiest routes of the trip which made it funnier when I slipped off the first 4b moves and returned to the ground quickly. Also went off route onto something hard near the top and took a good lob. If you follow the actual line it's about E1, though you might find the cruxes being the E1 4c slab pitches (5c+ and 5b+) rather than the E1 5c (6a+ and 6b) pitches. You'll be good at laybacking by the top too and leave plenty of time and daylight for the descent, it goes on a bit! Great end to a great week and stunning alpine views all day....

Went wrong way at end of P6, climbed 6c groove for 15 metres. Ab back to P7 belay, went the right way. Heavy rain started at end of P7! Must go back to finish.

Really pleased as this was the route i came to do. Quality granite and an afternoon ascent after walking in after the rain gave in. Learnt that somebody had fallen off earlier in day and hurt themselves quite badly - helicoptered out. glad we didn't know. Was a bit wet but not too bad. Some waulity pitches. E1?

Probably the best rock route I have ever done, in just 4.5 hours! Absolutely superb, a shame it isn't in the UK. It is actually only 6a+ (6a obl), not 6b, but is really more like E1/2 - the bolts are only every 15m or so and you need a trad rack.
