Phil Murray 20 Oct, 2015 Solo O/S Huge block came loose at 2/3 height - to the left of the sapling. Had no choice but to lever it off from the security of the tree. Further choss was then removed. I finished on the front (the HS on the right), which has sound rock, & I would strongly avoid the direct finish of this route now - it's horrible - loose, & (currently dry) mud. The steep "smooth" crack below is still good, though. I was solo, so am quite relieved I'm OK.

Humpty Dangler 6 May, 2008 Lead O/S First climb of the evening, as a warm up. Orthanc is a wonderful triangular outcrop, tapering to an atmospheric belay stance on top of the point. This route follows the left extreme edge, and suffers from loose rock almost everywhere. The rest of the outcrop suffers also to some extent but not as much as Dain. There are plenty of holds and the moves are not hard, but most of the time you are just looking for something stable enough to trust.
