Swotson 17 Jul, 2018 AltLd O/S Disappointing. Went right to top, but want worth it. Too much snow on descent path so abseiled down. Also, I unwittingly did 2nd & 3rd pitches in one. Paid the price with the biggest rope drag ever. Had to aid 1 balancy move near top as I could barely move:(

Just Will 29 Oct, 2016 AltLd O/S With Murray. The second 5c pitch felt much harder than 5c, but the 6a pitch felt super easy. Wasn't sure about the grading on most of the pitches - seemed off.

Debbie Lee 4 Sep, 2015 AltLd Just Manhatten part. Very enjoyable route. First pitch was damp so diverted to a '4c' next door. Continued to top of middle bastion, bolt spacing substantially less generous on last two pitches!
