Flavio 20 Apr Lead O/S It's bin na gapple of years since I first wanted to do this! Emerged from the fog soup in one pitch - it would be a shame to break up the climbing. No words can describe how superb this is, so good it will bring tears to your eyes.

masa-alpin 6 Jun, 2016 AltLd Fantastic route – one of the best E3s I've ever climbed, with finger to fist jams. Tricky P1 followed by sustained and varied P2. Dave lead P1 with 1 fall (I seconded clean), I did P2.

davkeo 6 Jun, 2016 AltLd dog P1. Best line iv seen at fairhead. Felt comfortable until the crux section where I was in place for a while shaking out and working out the move. Took one fall here as I missed an obvious foothold which meant a higher step up that I just didn't have the juice for. Went straight up it (using said foothold) after fairly easily. 4th full day here so I can't b too disappointed. P2 felt harder for me. Best route to date.
