31 pitches. VI 5.8 C2 to 5.14a - You choose

The world's most most well-known rock climb and one of the finest. As well as climbing a compelling feature and being superbly positioned, many of the individual pitches are magnificent pieces of climbing in isolation. In total, the route is justifiably the apex of many people's climbing aspirations. Most parties still take 3-5 days. The Nose...in-a-day is a special experience. QUOTE Duncan Critchley first NIAD Brit. The current speed record is a scarcely believable 2:23:51 by Hans Florine and Alex Honnold beating the old record of 2hrs 36mins 45secs by Dean Potter & Sean Leary.

FFA Lynn Hill Sep/1993.
