A long route with an interesting first pitch and a seldom climbed upper one (not described here). From the corner traverse right to gain a hanging groove in the arete. Climb this on large holds to an easing in angle and a belay on the left.

Why not describe the upper pitch? It is better than the first and really out there! You HAVE to face outwards to even see the leader in action.

I'd agree. The top pitch was brilliant, but I've not done it for years and I think the pegs have gone.
Geoff Goddard - 20/Feb/02

Yeah, put the top pitch in and someone might repeg (bolt) it - otherwise it will just fade away!

In 2002 i put a bolt belay in an outcrop above the top ptch of CT.
I was intending to ab it clean it and replace whichever pegs needed replacing (not with bolts)
I never got round to it but the BB is still there for someone else to use.
