This is often a full-value route. Ken Younge & I climbed it in early April 2003. Due to its aspect - East - it gets first light very early, and the snow conditions deteriorate quickly. Hit it during a cold snap, and be on it by 7am.
The initial pitches are challenging M4. I recall simul. climbing the upper sections.
It's a full day outting, but well worth the effort.
