"We climbed all the pitches free, either O/S or flash except for the 8a where I took 1 fall. A hard pitch! ...For me this was a another great in-sight into hard climbing in alternative places. The walk in, the bivi, the temperatures and the altitude all lead to the added seriousness and difficulties of climbing something like this free... All in all though for me the hardest part was..........the bloody walking!"
