Ashley King 28 Feb Lead O/S Amazing route on awesome rock. Although the walk in to get to it is a bit of nightmare. Can basically pick your own way up when you reach the ridge. Takes lots of large gear.

adawson 28 Feb 2nd A sketchy, slightly damp mod section to get to the start of the main ridge but nice climbing/scrambling moving together on good rock on the ridge topping out on the summit in an impressive coire.

Arjen ??, 2006 2nd O/S The first pitches are not described, and are horrible, shossy, wet loose and green. Once on the ridge things are worth the 2 stars! Pitch the first 2 sections, and move together after that, it are only short, easy climbs with very little risk of falling.
