Rockfax Description
Take the big groove over easy ground to a possible stance. From a thread in the chimney, shuffle left to reach and finish up the other chimney. Traversing further left is the wild Pongo Finish. This is better, a little harder and more exposed. © Rockfax

Bivvied the night before and led this first thing. Split into 2 pitches but in hindsight should have led through. A bit vegetated but good climbing where you could get at the rock!

with the Pongo Finish. The crux was gaining and leaving the chimney of the normal finish - green wet and slimy, very worrying!

Did this then spent night in bivi cave, woke early (with Ivar in mind) and climbed all day. One of best experiences.
