βeta: Sustained interest throughout, although last pitch is a bit of a gimmie at 5b. Thought the 6a+ pitch was harder than crux pitch. Bolts are spaced by Ailiefroide standards on first three pitches, first especially. Prospective leaders would want to be climbing Ailefroide 6a to get through this comfortably, P1-3 not easily aidable at A0.

pguilloux 13 Jul AltLd O/S Very good route. 6a+ pitch was the crux for me . Linked it with riviere kwai at the top wich make a very good combination. Read carefuly guidebook for abseiling though.

blahblahblah 13 Jul - Brilliant route although I seemed to do pitches 1&2 as 1 with long run outs? Finished up River Kwai for a long day of climbing!

subdir 20 Oct, 2018 Lead O/S Nice, varied route climbing up an aesthetic pillar of very good rock, well protected with bolts but not a bad idea to take a light trad rack as well. Separate abseiling line to the left (facing the wall), not always easy to spot the anchors, useful to have a pic/topo. Back in Ailefroide after 10+ years, we are both in better shape!

kieraneason 26 Jul, 2018 AltLd O/S I did the 6a+ and 6a pitches. Not sure why it’s a 6b graded climb? The 6a+ was a bit thuggish but the 6a was very good. Finished as the storm arrived, hurriedly abseiled off, but missed the belay and tagged onto two chaps from Kendal’s rope to save faff getting back up.

Swotson 12 Jul, 2018 AltLd O/S Fantastic line, predominately up the arete. Excellent route. 6a+ pitch (Rachel's lead) was ace, weaving through bulges and up cracks, the odd jam here & there. The 6a slab at top was excellent too.

Theeni 22 Aug, 2014 AltLd O/S I climbed the even pitches. Finger locking is a bit misleading, there are a couple of locks available on the 6a+ pitch. Had a bit of a nightmare with the abseil. Dropped my belay device after the first ab and couldn't find the end of the second ab so ended up swinging left (not ideal on an improvised karabiner abseil device) into the gulley found a tree, made a short third ab to a descent trail. Ultimately probably quicker than continuing to ab down the face and the path moved out of the fall line quite quickly.
