Not really in condition-but climbable-a bit thin/tricky in a few places.

Stubbs led initial groove. Me 3 of the chockstones in the crack, then back to Stubbs for the final tricky step. Good neve, brittle ice in places.

Poor condition, avoided using axes on any turf( not frozen in the slightest). Shame because it looks like a nice line when in nick.
Zoomer - Lead O/S - 05/Mar/14 with Danny Mc Andrew
Stepped Ridge was rammed so this was a good alternative. Very soft/unconsolidated snow, very little ice and the turf is spongy. Still perfectly doable and a great day out in nice weather.

We went up the slabs to the left of the crack because it was full of unconsolidated snow, before joining the route further up. Good turf and felt about III.

only my second winter route and I have to say what a buzz. Watching Stuart, my mentor, negotiate the choc stones on the second pitch got me thinking, but thoroughly enjoyed the route and didn't feel out of my depth at any point. Great day out.

Snow unconsolidated, some but not all turf frozen and some tricky moves out of the crack on pitch 2 which were difficult to protect. Nice day out but needs a good freeze to firm everything up.

First ice step had been worn away by previous parties so climbed rock ledge on the left. Rest of route was in good condition but felt easy for the grade. More like a II with a couple of steeper steps. Still a great route and would recommend it as a first grade III due to it's ease and good protection.

I led pitches 1 and 3, Will led 2. Then traversed into Central Gully and finished up that. Turf was mainly unfrozen so a good job the climbing was mainly on rock and snow! All very wintery looking and feeling, it was snowing for most of the climb.
Simon Caldwell - AltLd O/S - 12/Jan/08 with Carmen and Will
Led pitch 2. Conditions improved from top to bottom. Somewhat unfrozen at the bottom and loose snow. From top of second pitch snow was much better. Only seemed to have a couple of tricky moves, so seemed easy for the grade. Finished up central gully, the top of which was in good nick.
