wi11 - AltLd O/S - 25/Feb/15 with Tom G

Tough conditions today. Every crack and foothold had to be cleared of thick hoar which ending up being pretty exhausting! Loads of gear though

Led all 3 pitches. Fantastic climb, loved the crack on P2 and crux on P3 all great. Really good conditions, -5 and no wind. 3*** for me.

Pretty full on conditions, gusting 80 and heavy snow. Great route though with tonnes of gear and bomber hooks. P2 crack is good. Had to traverse off before last pitch due to partners newly battered face after a disagreement with an axe. Face lost :(

Theres a piton to hook on the lower crux, but if you don't hook this, I think that bits a bit harder than the upper crux.

Martin Haworth - AltLd - 19/Dec/11 with Andy

Led 1st and 3rd pitches. Really struggled to set up a belay at top of 1st pitch. I thought crux 3rd pitch was nails hard for the grade; the heinous conditions didn't help. Superb route and a big tick so early in the season.
Andrew Sloan - AltLd O/S - 19/Dec/11 with Martin Haworth

Variation last pitch we think, up droidless.
