Climbed Oddshouters upper pitch for the first time in many years this weekend and did the direct as described in Tony's new guide book. From the top of the Gullet chimney head straight up. About half way up the direct section above the Oddhsouters crux, we stayed even further right than the topo indicates in the guide book. What a stunning pitch - long, very direct, sustained, steep climbing, ending right at the abseil anchors. Above the Oddshouters crux there is a fair amount of lichen especially higher up, but with some cleaning and traffic this would certainly be one of the best pitches of its grade on the mountain.

I just wondered how many people are doing it this way, and hoping more will especially with a little wire brushing by the seconds.
