A tough and sustained mission up the steep flakeline. At the top of the flake make a long reach up and slightly left, then up to the break. Peg runner on the left. Sweep rightwards to a bolt belay beside a tree.

I was very fortunate to be ron,s second on the 1st ascents of the kill, unreal and hell,s teeth.
These were named after passing an unfortunate rabbit being slaughtered by a weasel with much squealing.A scource of useless info but not to me. Cheers

T. Birks send me your full name and I'll add you to the credits in the new guide. Plus I've only ever had 1978 (Ron wasn't great on record keeping) for the date of these ascents. Can you be more specific.
