First proper winter climb. Mostly unconsolidated snow with plenty of ice. Took it slow and steady and enjoyed the sublime surroundings.

Unconsolidated snow and ice only really present on the flat ledges. Main challenge was staying dry.

With Dave's cousin Andy on his first winter outing. Loads of snow on the route, not much ice until the top. Down climbed Far Far Far East after which was on good condition.

Good condition, quite a lot of ice! Fun when you tackle the short steep sections directly! Good first winter climb proper.

Enjoyable day-apart from tons of powder on hillsides. Short iced up corners gave some surprisingly awkward climbing so roped up in the upper sections for first outing this winter.

Mike & Anne moved roped together while I soloed most of it except for a couple of places where I chose an interesting way for which I asked for a top-rope. Not much climbable ice, lots of manky snow, quite a lot of mixed/try-tooling.
LesserTrochanter - 20/Jan/13 with Michael Finegan, Anne Boardman

Bit of ice, but still lots of fun. First time with axes proper.

Climbed in dark first winter climb. Little poor quality ice out of condition. Mostly dry tooled
bantamdave - 2nd O/S - 17/Jan/13 with Trisha, Murray

Great evenings climb. Lots of fun more of a mixed climbing outing as there was not a lot of ice.
trish1968 - 2nd - 17/Jan/13 with Murray

Mostly verglas so hard in places
cragtyke - Solo - 13/Dec/12

Was starting to melt as we reached the top, placements were getting harder to find not helped by the amount of traffic it had seen, lots of debris at the bottom of the interesting bits. Good fun though!

Climbed at dusk. Had obviously been hacked to bits earlier in the day but was refreezing quickly. Several interesting pitches.

Good few steps, took them direct as possible except the last major one as it was overhanging and had a waterfall down it. Also a night time ascent and topped out at around midnight

Ice all forming nicely. The two small ice falls are good, and climbed direct. Bit delicate in places, but still plenty of axe placements, and really surprisingly thick in places. 2 people in front of us 3, and at least 2 behind.

Ice bit thin in places but worth doing at the moment. Bit of water still running but frozen for the most part.

Two small ice falls (3 or 4 mtrs), and pleasent steps between. Ice was quite bashed up.

Soloed after work, bit lean lower down but gets better in the upper half. Evidence of a small avalanche in the upper section.

Moved together for much of the route, snow unconsolidated and ice only thin in places except nearer top
