danieleaston 17 Oct, 2018 AltLd dog Such a long day. Climbed as a 3 with 2 single ropes, belaying was exhausting work. Pulled on gear a few times, for speed but also I wasn't on great form today. Route felt hard, polished and traditional, wedne the easy bits felt hard. Led something like 3,5,7,9,11,12,14. Finished at dusk. Abseiling in the dark was a remarkable experience, the rock was warm, stars and a full moon lighting up the granite all around and being high up above the valley lights. Some difficulty finding rap anchors.

Thought this a steady severe until the crux traverse after the abseil bolts on the supposed '5.4 slabs' which most miss out. I'd grade that appallingly deceptive 5.4 final pitch VS, those slabs are as psychologically hard as the glass traverse on Snake Dike, although perhaps not technically as hard. Did the higher 5.6 traverse to get back to the abseil bolts whihc was made harder by the ballbearings! The horrendous 10 abseils made me wish I had traversed the death slabs for a third time! Defo recommend North Gully descent.
