Curving crack. Four un necessary bolts lead to a single bolt belay and fixed carabiner. The crack protects well with offset and regular nuts, 2 x .5, 1 x 2, 1 x 3 camalot. Makes an excellent all natural protection route. Very enjoyable dry tooling or summer rock climb. The anchor could use a second bolt, and the bolts in the crack dont need to be there. Excellent natural protection.See pic below for wires used.

From the access ledge rappel for 45 metres from a backed-up ring to reach a small legde on the lip of a huge overhang. Climb up and left to an horizontal break then up and traverse back right for the last 10 metres to access ledge. A rack of wires and cams are necessary.

The right leaning diagonal crack to right of major chimney on face. A mixture of style and ease would be desired to overcome the full on first pitch, neither of which was shown on the FA, with a mixture of whimpering, digging, grovelling, whippers, power screams and eventual sending. Knees were used on several occasions.

To the right of the major chimney in the face, initially follow a low angle ramp diagonally right, before stepping with difficulty into a chossy offwidth, improving into a right leaning double crack system. Crux is a roof at the top with good gear.

2M340mYes
 

Follow the chimney, followed by some ice and a turfy corner.

3M445mYes
 

A direct line. Follow a low angle left leaning corner, followed by a series of steep steps with good gear when needed.

4M440mNo
 

A couple of steep steps.
