Not much more direct than the original. 1) 5a, 14m. Climb the wide crack that splits the face on the right awkwardly to a good stance on the regular route. 2) 4c, 14m. The flared groove, then the flake on the left, lead to a ledge. Originally the wall on the right was climbed, deviously. 3) 4a, 10m. Finish up the widening and easing crack just left.
First pitch - traditional climbing at its best!
The first pitch seemed to require grunting and shuffling to get up. Definately what I'd call a struggle.
Yep, plenty of improvisation required on pitch one. I've got the scars to prove it :o)
