DSM 13 Feb, 2010 Lead O/S Two long but easy pitches in a spectacular setting followed by a very long (70m?) main pitch to reach the top. There's a magnificent udgey chimney then its quite sustained and rather run out all the way although never desperate - a cool confident approach required. Maybe V5 /3 stars?
