In nice lean condition today. Pitch two has continued interested, some really nice climbing. Crux is on third pitch but short lived, bomber gear throughout. Great start to the season

Lovely bit of kit

First 2 pitches were good, Harry smashing out a good lead on 2. But as I tried to move back into the crack on pitch 3 I couldn't get round the corner without being blown back round by the 80mph winds! (turns out I was trying to high according to Mike.) Ran away and tried to climb last pitch on Droiless, but had to downclimb due to rope drag. So eventually Harry came across and we escaped up some gully to the top.

Colin Dyer 18/Feb AltLd

Brilliant route. Quite sustained but very well protected. Very nice climbing throughout.

Burried made for slow progress, abbed off after p2. Great experience on my first V thought!

Led 1 and 3. Bomber gear all the way, was difficult not to place too much.

Liam Watson 31/Jan AltLd O/S

Fantastic route, had awesome conditions with loads of gear. First grade V so very happy to have led the crux, an awkward move just above some in-situ tat.

Fell from crux on lead so handed over to hest good route found it tough going

Hugh Simons 17/Jan Lead O/S

First pitch banked out so soloed to below the wall. Did the climb in 2 big pitches from there. Lots of snow to clear from the route on lead as it was pretty banked out, especially the 2nd pitch! Definite crux for me was the short chimney near the end of the 1st pitch, I got stuck in it for about 45 mins, really hard work to get un-stuck... 2nd pitch was good, some cool moves, really nice climbing!

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

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.

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.
