This route has been on my "to do again" list for a long time...it didn't disappoint! Protection was better than I remembered [thank's to modern gear]. However, I did find some of the moves harder than expected as I lacked sufficient flexibility...who wants old age! Really enjoyed it though, recommend to those operating in the E2 grade.
Belayed and photographed with radio shutter release by Jack Coulton.

Nice one Tony! I’m glad to see you are still going well. You won’t get me on the neighboring Three Screaming Popes 28 years after my first ascent!
