sorta did this or soething like it, soloed up first picthes taking all the ice available, Moved into a corner/slab which looked to hard to solo, so we droppoed back down and up the rick rib, traversed R to edge of gully and up L to the groove just right of chockstone (awkward to exit). Moved up some bays then up steepish wall with mossy grove to finish (bold). God fun but who knows where we went

Good ice and turf, picked our way up using features that gave the best sport for the conditions.

Bit short of cover but turf generally solid. Could do with a good freeze though.

did a slightly different variant up the central buttress missing out Riley's Window and the ice pitches and taking in frozen turf, neve and rock tot the summit about grade II mainly with a top pitch of II/III up steep turf to the top of the ridge.

gripped01 - AltLd - 09/Dec/12 with Dave Tait
Meant to do Left branch, but route finding issues due to poor topo; following foot steps I found myself up a short iced crack at moved around IV!?
Mix of powder snow and some nicely consolidated snow, patches of ice about. It started drizzling as we finished the day. It would benefit from a little more snow and a freeze/thaw.

Route finding mare! Did 3 decent pitches of 2 or 3 then found ourselves back in Central Gully! Ticking it anyway so I don't find myself trying it again in years to come.

Peter Holder - Lead O/S - 19/Dec/11 with Nicky Milley, Malcolm Pounder, Adam Rawlings
Good route although a bit lacking in line. Definately a lot longer than the guide book would suggest. We went through well over 200 meters of rope and the guide book says 100 meters. Pretty low on gear.
Conditions quite good, turf frozen quite a bit of ice and snow useable for feet.

The 10ft V-groove at the start gives good sport (IV)with the subsequent top out being loose & exciting.

jason - Solo - 28/Nov/10 with manmike
Did a little variation right at the start to do a small ice pitch, then went back on course. Route was quite hard to follow from the guidbook description. We found the window, but was unclear from then on - seemed to get hard for the grade shortly after so mebbe we went a bit astray. (Specially since we went left and I see the route description says "rightwards traverse then continue easily to the top ;-D. Anyway, we got up. Ice was very brittle yesterday, top few inches of snow so powdery it was like dust but decent neve underneath

Sankey - AltLd - 19/Feb/10 with Andy E
Route is vague in places but we roughly followed the described line. The window proved a good photo opportunity.
Good Gr III pitches and I guess one could climb almost anywhere on the buttress at the grade. Excellent conditions and a good fun day out.

ollyroberts - Solo - 17/Feb/10 with Kyle
A wandering route and illogical line too vague to warrant stars. Some tasty mixed moves were found, as was the famous 'Riley's Window'. Came too high left for the right arete at end, so ventured left of final buttress and found a superb and very technical V Groove. I suspect every piece of rock, ice and variation on this buttress to have been climbed before.

just took a line of weakness upwards. dont think it was the exact route in the guidbook. nice adventure though!
