Yeah fair call there, the only problem is that everything we did from F4 to F8a (Based on the local guide) was amazing. Didn't do an overage route really. I could easily rant and rave about almost every route, but i thought for the purposes of a concise TR, best to stick to talking about a couple of routes in detail, and simply mention a few of the other classics for anyone who might be interested in a visit at some stage.
