Led all 3 pitches. Heavily rimed, bottom pitch felt pretty desperate as there was literally no neve, just powder on rock. Second pitch rather traditional!

Led P1 and 3. Wintery but quite thin in places. A great experience...

Great and strenuous climb! Got very 'involved' in the crack. Led P1,2,'4' and Tom led P3. Thought the crux was the first section of the crack.

Teappleby 21/Feb AltLd O/S

First Grade V, so psyched! The plan had been for Micki to lead the first pitch but he thought he'd only done half of it when he stopped as he could see the chockstone above. So when i seconded he "finish off" his pitch and it turned out the crack wasn't as long as we'd though and we'd already done the crux chockstone and this was pitch 2! So from then on we alternated up 3 and 4. Great Leading by Micki on the crux and generally a great route!

Brilliant route, absolutely plastered

with Jamie Evans
jamiefoxen 01/Mar/14 Lead O/S

More of a archaeological excavation than a climb. Powdery in the chimney, but some nevi at bottom. Thick verglas on the chimney walls and verglas and some hoarfrost on walls either side, making gear very hard to find or excavate. Some better gear opportunities emerged on top pitch as the verglas thinned. Overall totally brilliant climb!

dragged up by Percy, and what a sterling job he did, conditions were pretty desperate, no ice just banked up with soft snow. Required a spot of feet-less pull up on axes and some interesting frogging movements.

Kyle's first grade V, and he did it very well. Done in 2 pitches. Rocks being rimed with some but not too much snow, the temperature floating at around zero, the conditions were great. We set off the carpark at 6:20, yet we were the third party of the route.

Just about in nick. Was really starting to hore up more and more throughout the day. Wind made it a little more exciting.

with Lee Harrison
Big Lee 21/Jan/12 AltLd O/S

Full-on blizzard conditions with snow being blown vertically up all the routes from the coire. Possibly the toughest conditions I've endured on a Scottish route. Opted to ab down from the top the route given the likely treacherous plateau winds but this in itself was tough as the rope got blown all over the place and kept knotting as a result. Thoroughly enjoyable day despite conditions and a classic route.
