Hung, Drawn & Quartered*** VIII 8
75m, 4 pitches. An exceptional winter line; first climbed in heavily verglassed conditions. Protection generally plentiful but complicated by iced cracks – large cams/chocks/hex’s and several long slings required.
1. The main chimney line was climbed direct through the roofs; strenuous but accommodating (superb, easy 8).
2. The cracked roof above the belay was climbed direct instead of the ladder dyke on the left (strenuous, hard 8).
3. Very strenuous exit up crack on right side of dyke (hard 8).
4. Awkward finish at the chockstone (7).

Wild! Stunning day with fantastic conditions. Led P1 and most of P3 and P4. Ran out of go-go juice on the strenuous exist crack to P3, so belayed and brought Ross up to lead through. Full body ache the day after!!
