Third day of winter climbing course - felt like I actually climbed today and didn't just flounder about! Thanks to the guys who gave us advice on the second pitch. Winter climbing is a friendly place to be! Psyched for more now!
LP - 2nd O/S - 05/Jan/14

Busy at the crag but very sociable! Lots of powder, some useful ice but heavily iced cracks made this feel quite serious. A superb couple of pitches with the top corner to the right of the roof providing the technical highlight. Did in two long pitches but more like 110m rather than 90.
MrRiley - AltLd O/S - 04/Jan/14 with Debbie Lee

James lead P1 and I, P2. Due to powder snow, the gear was hard to find. P1 had some useful ice, but P2 hardly did. The tech-6 crux in P2 was 20-30 metres up the belay with insecure placements with no 100%-trustable gear from the belay - very serious...

mux - 28/Jan/12 with Jan Svrcek

Great climb and an awesome line. The bottom was a bit thin so felt technical but higher up it was well rimed and all the turf was frozen

Rapidly thawing so backed off. Pish weather.
Lamb - Lead dnf - 04/Jan/12

Not much snow about, and in very lean / difficult condition. Did everything but the very top pitch, and backed off due to darkness arriving.

Ken Applegate - Lead - 12/Dec/11 with Hannah Evans

Hannah Evans - 2nd - 12/Dec/11 with Ken Applegate

tricky first few moves with no neve and some thin hooks. linked 1&2 then followed third pitch as it went dark. good hooks behind chock stones through the roof, not too technical.

Tom Livingstone - AltLd O/S - 11/Dec/11 with sam radcliffe

fluffed up the crux at top of 2nd pitch, rested on rope then did it clean
climbing_wiggy - AltLd dog - 10/Dec/11 with Leon

First winter route of the season. Excellent third pitch but some good climbing throughout. Led pitches 2 & 3. Finished after dark but no epic... just lots of queuing! Crux needed some care as no reliable neve.

Climbed 1st two pitches. Only thin covering of ice. Had to bail out after 2nd pitch to the left up the snow ramp, so I could catch train. Will be back for the top crux pitch :P

newtonmore - 2010

Fairly tough conditions having to fight through neve and ice to find gear, was running for the fence at the top when both axes ripped took a flighty lob of the last move, probably should of taken a bit more care of what my axes were in. Started late and was getting dark so abbed off.

Had my axes in what i thought was bomber neve atop the crux. Turns out it wasn't and next thing i knew i was cartwheeling backwards down the gully. Unhurt (except my pride) i continued to the top slightly less spectacularly.
joe larner - AltLd - 10/Dec/09 with Adam Russell

McGeek fell off the end of the last pitch. And landed on me. After the hole his crampon made in my leg started bleeding we bailed out!
whispering nic - AltLd dnf - 08/Dec/09 with McGeek
