βeta: Wow suprised previous poster bagged the route at end of march - must have been an early start. We traversed off after 2 pitches as it was too soft in the sun. Stuff we climbed deffo wasnt 4 - Id say about a 3. Cant comment on top pitches though. Cracking route with panoramic views of the valley - one to relax and have fun on.

TheFasting 17 Mar, 2018 Lead O/S I ropegunned the whole thing. The sun was very warm so I decided to make things safer I ran up past the curtain on pitch 4 and didn't set any pro until I was past them. Most exhausting pitch. Especially with the short bit of ice after already sprinting up the first 30m or so. Did it in 4 pitches even after running out the whole rope on pitch 1 and only having 5 meters left on pitch 4.

speedymccreedy 7 Feb, 2013 Lead dog First WI multi-pitch and a superb to do first; also first attempt at WI4 lead. Sustained climbing over, in effect, three large tier with fairly significant ramps in between, finishing on up into a gully then exiting right via a narrow chimney. By no means an easy climb; very sustained both through the steep pitches and the in-betweens. Was spent by the 3rd tier, and after attempts at both siege tactics and sports style/aid climbing, ended up accepting a TR up to the 3rd belay stance. Admittedly we did appear to have climbed the hardest line, however, this ended up sapping energy very early on in a long climb; easiest line appears to be via the tree/rock line on the RHS. Route was a 30 min walk-in from parking and the climb ended up taking just shy of 7 1/2 hrs.
