Lead first pitch which had a tricky and unprotected move at the start. Easier to the belay after, a fine lead from Mark up the top pitch! Excellent climbing.

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!

MrRiley 04/Jan/14 AltLd O/S

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.

masa-alpin 04/Jan/14 AltLd O/S

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...

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.
