I led pitch 3/4, and by the time that I seconded pitch 5 the rain had arrived. First pitch was harder than expected. I managed the crux move ok on pitch 2, but was glad to have seen how Ian and Pete had done it (probably easier for those of us with long legs). Ended up veering on to the 5b pitch of Waterkelpie Wall for our 4th (the 5th) pitch. I had to resort to aid to at one point as the rock quickly lost all friction, which made for an interesting final couple of pitches.

Added the start of pitch 5 from Waterkelpie Wall. Crack system in upper section of the route was soaking, not helped by the rain.

cracks were generally wet but a good mountaineering adventure up the buttress

We were lucky the top section of the climb was bone dry in the current heat wave. I thought the climbing on the upper section on pitches 4,5 and 6 was excellent with interesting climbing and where the correct and easiest line is not always obvious.

Managed to free the crux on second, not sure if I could have done it on lead though. More excellent climbing all the way to the top with the 4c pitch having some great moves. The final route on a perfect trip to a long sought after destination.

Awesome route. Found it in bone dry conditions. Tough move on the overhang. Used a sling! Led 1&3
