90m. Named after the Canadian Whisky....Three pitches. Climb rightwards from the foot of the buttress to reach a corner. Climb this, hard in thin conditions, up and over small bulge to a stance. Continue up the chimney above to the top of the crag.

Started up this and crossed the Haston Line but then finished up Hidden Chimney because time was running out. Prettyy hard and run out break to break climbing with bad snow and bad hooks. Crux felt fairly grade V 5 ish.

masa-alpin 24/Nov/13 AltLd O/S

I lead P1 (merging to The Haston Line), Kyle did P2 (to the ledges) and P3. In today's condition, where rocks were very well rimed but ice on rock was not thick enough, P1 was both bold and hard - practically 15 metres run out from the deck up to tech 5, then the crux of tech 5/6 with OK-ish protection higher - solid grade VI. P3 was solid grade IV.

Mr. K 23/Nov/13 AltLd O/S

Masa lead pitch one, felt something like VI, 6! Very tenuous hooks and poor gear. I lead pitch two and three, some nice Tech 4/5 bits around the start of pitch three.

Harry did most of the work (clearing) and the lack of ice made this super-duper hard. Nice line though. Finished up the Slant as tine was getting on.

Fuck. Me. No ice, Tricky going to gain the corner with pish gear. Then harder continuing up the corner, A good nut on left wall in crack system. Got to the corner a few metres away from the easy ground and couldnt top it due to lack of anything for placements. Then struggled to gain the left wall via the crack system on top of the ledge, Definately tech 6 alone for that as it involved a horrid scary mantle, Got a nice chockstone thread with some insitu and just bailed off leaving a biner. If anyone can get to it, you're free to it as im impressed you chose to continue. If however its icy good conditions, I want it back! hah.

If you want a spicy and enjoyable extra, go left from belay at the top of the corner, then up and right. Enjoy!

freudy_love 30/Dec/11 Lead O/S

Top chimney pitch only after coming up Hidden Chimney Direct and linking via the slant. Big hard footless pull on bomber hooks round the back of the (not so?) bomber hollow flake straight off the belay to get established but eased considerably after the first few metres with good gear too.

Attempted in very thin conditions. Felt very hard and subsequently took a fall and left a nut and quickdraw in place. Not recommended if there's no ice!

frecro 30/Jan/11 Lead dnf

Horrible conditions overhead and underfoot - no ice and lots of powder. Lowered off after 10 metres. Left behind yellow hex and quickdraw (if anyone's feeling kind, i'd like it back....If not, lucky you)
