The front of the pillar is fully-bolted and provides a long expedition. The descent is by abseil back down the line.
1) 6b+, 27m. A worthwhile pitch on its own.
2) 6a, 25m. This pitch can be tagged on to the first.
3) 6c, 20m. Move up the right-facing depression.
4) 4, 10m. Head easily left.
5) 6b+, 20m. Up to below the final wall.
6) 7a+, 20m. The final wall to the summit.


Most people detour to avoid the unpleasant and badly bolted crux move.

This wall is now closed with a fence at the bottom, due to flower protection.

The description for this route is woeful and quite dangerous. The third pitch is the longest and is actually closer to 35m long. It's lucky we had a 70m rope which was just long enough to abseil off without having to re-belay from a single bolt (I just reached the next belay on rope stretch). This explains the in situ mallion nowhere near the hardest move on the pitch when I initially climbed the route!

This whole sector is now BANNED and fenced off to protect rare flora. (See Rockax news section for details)
