Awesome fun! Popular route today!! Two/Three nice steep ice pitches to start, lots of fun easy ground in the middle and a wicked overhanging icy mixed pitch (possibly grade 6?) with super solid turf near the top. Finishing along the Aonach Eagach followed by a mega bumslide back to the car was the icing on the cake! :-)

Great fun. Been wanting to do it for awhile. The mixed pitch at the top(avoidable) is brilliant, probably VI,6.

did about 100m, which were awesome, then got bored by easier ground so left it at that and came back down. Water running.

On the day protection was token on the first 3 pitches. I would have graded it VI,5 on the day.
