The deep groove has an awkward bulge early on and more tricky moves to leave the half-height niche. Not a bad effort for a century ago. An exposed exit up the arete to the right is a worthwhile variation.

What a wonderful outing!!

Good route. A bit runout at the top if you decide to just carry on swimming to the top rather than hanging on the steep bit and looking for gear.
Jonathan Tompkins - 02/May/04

Excellent route with an abundance of great gear, but getting past the first bulge is pretty damn hard for a VDiff.

Pretty bogstandard for a VD crack, insert oneself and squirm.

There is a much better (exposed) finish up the final part of Gavel Neese - traverse out from the 2nd ledge.
