βeta: I'd agree with VS grade. It's sustained in difficulty. The crux after the first belay climbing the block is 4c no?

Greg Boswell 7 Feb, 2017 Lead rpt Climbed from the base of the route to the top of all three pitches in one pitch. It took me roughly 12 minutes from bottom to top, which was a bit different from when I did it years ago and took most of the day. Amazing route, third time I've climbed it. There is a big loose torpedo block at the very top of the third pitch, be careful!

AndyP 16 Sep, 2006 AltLd O/S Great route sustained at 4b with possibly two moves at 4c. Will led one of these past the roof and belayed there. There is gear galore on this route plus pitons and tat. There was a 10 feet high wet patch half way up the corner on the right wall. I added a hardly used sling and krab to the belay/abseil station at the top. This station is the abseil point for four of the most popular routes in the corrie and consists of two chockstones wrapped with a myriad of decaying tat. Not only are these routes very popular but Glenmore Lodge is a stonesthrow away, bearing this in mind the abseil station is NOT ACCEPTABLE. It should be replaced with a proper station.
