/ Ice fall from crowberry basin, does it have a name?
Struggling to work out where that is, for one thing I've never been aware of alternative "summer" and "winter" starts to CR?
Email Simon Richardson at www.scottishwinter.com, sure he can tell you what it is / if it's been done.
It's been done although I'm not sure if it's been recorded. Normally it's a bit banked out but you've got it in fine nick. It's also a reliable water source in summer.
At the top of the scree off to the right straight up from the water slide. If it wasn't for the clag you could see the rannoch wall and curved ridge behind, central buttress is off to the left. Ignore the summer route, somewhat subjective I suppose but that's the way I've always done it, what I marked as the winter approach was a lovely long pitch of grade III water ice that day (had to down climb half of it to get back down!). It will have been climbed before just wondered if it had a name etc.
