Planned to do Savage Slit but had been stripped after the thaw, Deep Throat was thin but good. Gear everywhere.

Tried to lead P1 but got stuck in what appears to be the crux corner/overhang. Didnt committ so lowered off and mike lead that pitch. Then lead the top pitch. Ace route. Will come back to do it better. Some bomber hooks. Tech 6 is hard....

found this rather tiring, maybe due to how buried everything was today. nice route, toughest lead so far :-)
tomdude - AltLd O/S - 09/Feb/13 with rob

Led both pitches. Made more demanding because I'd left the Hexes in the car! Steve aided and bleated all the way up. Tough route.

Got pumped and disco-legged just under the first roof (crux?) and ended up taking a rest on the rope. Considering the meat of the route was still to come, success seemed a but a faint glimmer of possibility and I lowered off to run and fight another day. Two previous grade V routes does NOT a steady, confident grade V leader make!! There is now also an insitu no. 10 wire at the first roof, a thread round the small chockstone 5m below and a hammered in medium sized hex a few metres off the ground used for the belay. Good Luck!
freudy_love - Lead dnf - 29/Jan/12 with Dave Douglas

First grade V, great day out. Conditions were a little thin with lots of hoar and powder. Traverse was... delicate :)
CharlieMack - AltLd O/S - 28/Jan/12 with Duncan Wallace

with Magnus (Sweden) BMC Wintermeet. Great first pitch.
davesykes - AltLd - 23/Jan/12

Another great Lochain route. Awesome first pitch. Tricky, balancy moves at the traverse before the belay.
Big Lee - AltLd O/S - 22/Jan/12 with Richard Ashton

Great climb. I lead 1st pitch through the overhangs which made great fun and some nice positions. Did it in 2 pitches. Horing up nicely in the lochan
Rick Ashton - AltLd - 22/Jan/12 with Lee Harrison

did in two pitches. exciting moves through the roof on the first pitch, second pitch easier but really enjoyable climbing up the crack for the first half. my first V :)

Great wee route, bit bold with no hooks in sight, thin ice but with good feet, lots of consolidated neve with powder on top, gear prospects get better with height!
simon_D - Lead O/S - 29/Jan/11 with Geoff

Quite insecure climbing with all obvious hooks buried and relying on thin ice. Awesome moves through the roofs.
geoff.comley - AltLd O/S - 29/Jan/11 with Simon

Cracks choked with ice. Very enjoyable!
jonnie3430 - Lead O/S - 23/Jan/11 with Marcus, Carol

First Grade V and parts very hard. I took a variation up the pleasant corner instead of the chimney after first belay
