Can be climbed as two pitches by linking P1 and P2 together.

P1 can be linked into P2 and P3 of 'Doorpost' to create a 3-star "direct" route.

P1 and P2 can be linked together; as can P3 and P4 (making the last pitch less contrived). The route is easily escapable at the end of the P3 by moving right rather than back left.

FA: P H Biven, H T H Peck & B M Biven, 1956

Bosigran's prime VDiff experience is formed by a challenging route with diverse climbing and progressively more precarious stances. Start at a broad crevice.

  1. Ascend the 16m section, navigating the secure yet cumbersome crack, to a large ledge for belaying.

  2. 22m. Traverse to the left, followed by an upward movement, eventually arriving at a steep wall. Scale the wall and establish a belay position directly beneath a flared chimney.

  3. 35m. Enter the challenging chimney, climbing until a gradually ascending ledge becomes visible towards the left. Traverse along the ledge, navigating through an extremely exposed position, until reaching the summit.

FA: A W Andrews & J B Farmer, 1905

FA: G H L Mallory, E Andrews & S Cox, 1922
