Super climb, with a big feel to it. We reckoned easily 80 mtrs rather than 60, and seemed logical to split into two pitches by belaying in the big bay below the steep upper section at about 40 mtrs. We started at the bottom of Crazy Pinnacle Gully, but I went up onto the slabby grooved ground above it. There are some runners on this pitch, but they are spaced and you need a lot of thin slings and an ability to excavate little spikes to get many of them. Also many of the hard moved are very reliant on turf - I reckon it would be really dangerous if not well frozen. You trend slightly leftwards toward the top of this pitch to come into a bay below the steep amphitheater of rock that is the start of P2. Belay. P1 is probably worth IV,4. For P2 Simon went up the cracked wall above the bay to reach the groove formed by the detached pinnacle. He squeezed behind this and then stepped across a steep wall before powering up a steep but very user friendly groove above. Once out of the vert, grooves lead you up and ultimately to a belay on the top of pinnacle at the top of the route. IV,5. Getting off that pinnacle and across the little col and back to the main ridge was tricky and required a bit of ingenuity with the ropes! Great to get a grade V tick, but probably only IV,5 really.

A great hit after a heavy snow & a freeze. P1 was turfy & just in condition, P2 rocky. Nick went up a groove from the belay but the line goes left on to the arête & up a crack. Busy day here as 2 other parties turned up & a team ascended Reade's Route as well.
