A great expedition with good climbing throughout.
1) 4, 40m. Follow the rounded buttress, corner and wall past a chain to a good ledge and belay.
2) 5+, 40m. Move up left and climb to a cactus and then follow the crack above to another good ledge and belay.
3) 6a, 25m. Climb steepening rock on good holds to a belay.
4) 5+, 25m. Climb on past the final bulges to the top.
Descent - Abseil back down the line.

A lovely long route with a cracking crux pitch which I thought worth 6a+. Take care with the abseils (trees, a little loose rock etc.)only a 60 metre rope required.

First pitch harder than 4+, more like 6a, in fact the whole route seemed solid 6a. Some loose rock, especially on the last 2 pitches. Enjoyable adventure with good abseil anchors.
