A route of epic proportions which, which like the Bonatti Pillar, is no longer with us. first climbed by the Kourageous Kev. Starting on the north end of the NW face a steep arete was mounted. Upon establishing your belay, a series of traverses ensued. First, a shallow chimney, negotiated directly with a sequence of monos and egyptians. Next was a cavernous gap, cutting loose was the only option, grappling at the other side with your feet. Once equilibrium was establish with the use of some delicate balancing movements next up was the bold bare face. Only a skyhook for protection. Mono, crimp, gaston, lunge. finally the western arete was made, further sky hooks deployed and an easy scramble to the the second floor of the shed beside the cottage. END
