200m, 8 pitches. UIAA V with one move of V+/VI-, (the Piola guide has the crux pitch as French 5). Lower pitches are slow to dry.

Long day and brutal descent in 30 degree plus but lovely climbing. Want to come back and do north east ridge

Abbed off after first pitch when it started hailing, and the rope got stuck. Not the most best day.

Excellent climbing, particularly going through the overhangs around half-way. Route finding not always obvious, as some old pegs lead up cul de sacs. Had to do some necky down climbing. Generally, the rule sems to be: if in doubt, stay right. Frantic run to make last 'phrique, not wanting to repeat our previous misadventures (see 26 & 29 July!). Led Ps 1,3,4/5,7.
