Had quite the epic! First V 6! The route was fantastic! After Raeburns chimney the conditions got bad however and we were forced to abb in the dark

Bit of a gamble. Full winter cons inside but decidedly damp outside. Abbed from top of arch.

Amazing rute bit of a squeeze through the hole
Dougbart - Lead - 16/Dec/14 with paul selfrige

Lots of verglas in the chimney, which made for hard going. Can't believe I thought this might be a good first grade IV a few years ago...

Great route. Led odd numbered pitches. Last two pitches time consuming in powder, climbed p6 in the dark with headtorches.

entertaining, although i dont think the second pitch can justifiably be called climbing!
James S - AltLd O/S - 01/Feb/12 with edvin, sam

Interesting, glad im not too big, but good fun. Nice and sheltered, until your out of the chimney.
Harry Holmes - AltLd O/S - 22/Jan/12 with Dr Tom

Hard going ,masses of powder higher up and a tight squeeze to escape the chimney.But a memorable day .

Adi Hooper - AltLd - 27/Feb/11 with Roger Ward

Absolute insanity. Comical grunting and popping up out of small chest wide holes. Like alpine pot holing. Not for the claustrophobic or those with child bearing hips. A brilliant day out. Too funny

Martin Haworth - AltLd O/S - 22/Jan/11 with Rob Gray

Great stuff! One of my favourite routes to date, but then is do have a strange sense of humour! :)

Different variation to summer ascent, stayed at the back of the original fault the whole way up, some very tight squeezes!

Great route, tons of fun. Maybe not a route to do on a beautiful sunny day!
