I've done it. Its good - I think. I can't remember anything about it, except it had some chips on it then, which I was able to ignore. Have they been filled in?

I think the chips are old ones - it was chipped in the 80s, not long after the first ascent - hopefully it's not been chipped again  :please:

I should have pointed out my ascent was in the early 90s.

I onsighted it in '96.
The holds get better the higher you go in the second half.
It's an excellent route.
Cheers, Si.
