Nice easy approach and descent which I was glad for after yesterdays mission. Great route, melting though!

I wouldn't recommend this climb as it is starting to melt at the moment. I think we caught it in the nick of time. My second winter climb and first winter lead. Great.

First grade IV lead! Very long day! Two and a half hours' sleep were followed by alarm at 4.15. Weather pretty good. Light winds and sunlight briefly appeared on the Aonach Eagach. Icy walk in past the waterfalls. I led P1 - decent ice, took a screw or two - and belayed on a long screw and two big icicle threads. Dave led his first ever winter pitch: the second icefall (screws again) to a good rock belay under the intimidating-looking crux fall. Crap thread ice runner at the start and this was followed by not a single acceptable screw placement. So elected to leave them out! Temporary salvation came in the form of a very solid white Tricam a little above 1/3 height, but nil thereafter. Some swearing may have ensued. Bold, very bold! At least 15 mins to arrange a belay of brown mini-Tricam, abused gold offset and AK peg (solid) before Dave manned up brilliantly and led the direct finish with four good screws in bomber ice - albeit with an oh sh*t moment at 2/3 height when his axes popped. Dark was now closing in and a nigh-on interminable grade I slog ensued to the top. Not fancying the known and unknowns of the CB descent, we headed over to Coire nan Lochan, from where descent was blessedly easy. I romped the two miles to the car sack-less while Dave waited. Back at the car 10.30? What a day!

Climbing as a three and started at 1 pm after the masses had all but vacated the climb and after we had backed off The Screen due to rotten ice on the main pitch. No 6 was in great condition though a bit too stepped, but still able to to use virgin ice. Graham lead every thing except last pitch which was a joint lead with myself & Paul. Epic day.

With RK. The ice in the lower section of first pitch was dislodged by out passing. Thereafter a smashing ice route. We were unsure the traverse to the right at the top of the difficulties would lead us to a safe descent. So we went up..into sunshine and sandwiches...a smashing picnic

Misha 23/Feb/10 Lead O/S

Started at the very bottom, below a short mixed section past some small jammed (?) boulders. The ice crux was on P4, which had a short steep section, whereas the main ice fall on P5 was more like III. On the last pitch opted for an interesting mixed groove with a slightly overhanging exit via an ice column - don't think it was IV! Great route, very atmospheric situation. Six pitches, led P2, P4 and P6. We found two bits of dropped gear, one of which was a glove - email me with details.

Not quite as fun as last time as plus five degrees, lots of rain coming down and some slushy snow to deal with. A few of the pitches were pretty good though, good double with the Screen. Tempted by Elliot's Downfall but just a bit too mild!
