100m. This eponymous route takes a diagonal fault all the way to the upper ledge system, start up The Message IV,6 then continue up the diagonal fault which in the middle section is a left facing corner system taken by The Melting Pot V,6. Below the final corner of The Melting Pot climb a short step up and right onto the right ledge. In lean condition with limited build up it maybe better to traverse right onto the front face lower down and climb direct up to the ledge system. From the ledge finish by the top pitch of The Message

Al_Mac 23 Nov, 2016 Lead Absolutely buried under 2ft of powder. Hindsight says that The Message would have been a better proposition. 2hrs to lead each of the first two pitches so bailed from the route at the awkward step into the traverse in the face of fading light, overwhelming quantities of snow and underwhelming arm strength. A brutal day out. Single pitch rapp back to the base and back to the car in an hour. Walking out was easier than breaking the trail in had been in the morning. Missed Pete Whittaker's talk at the Tron by not turning up not so much fashionably late as arriving just as he finished.

willhawkins 26 Feb, 2011 Lead O/S Good route, 1st pitch pretty straight forward, 2nd pitch has a very technical move off the belay that's particularly hard in lean conditions. 3rd pitch is great fun and looks harder than it is (bomber hooks all the way up)- definitely not a soft IV,5 though.

Tile Diver 22 Nov, 2010 AltLd O/S Reasonable conditions for this time of year, still plenty unconsolidated snow on rock making some moves more delicate than normal, gear was ok although a fair bit of scraping around needed as it looked as though no one had been up it this season so far. Visibility terrible!!

French Erick 2 Dec, 2007 AltLd O/S Did different/new variation of pitch 2 since it looked to easy (plan A was message but corner to bare). Started as hybrid but came back to the right via a shallow groove come crack to finish 4 m of message p2 belay stance. More serious but not difficult V,5?
