Description 

Drakness Falls takes the steep couloir / chimney on the right hand side of the face. It reaches the ridge after 18 pitches and is 3rd / 4th class from there to the summit. It has one pitch of aid through a big roof at 2/3 height. The FA took around 65 hours. See the 2010 AAJ for more info.

Location 

Nantina Point, North Face

Protection 

Cams, stoppers, pins, ice screws. Take a few extra beaks, a hook, and a few small/medium heads for the aid pitch.
