Lots of snow - difficult to find the top of the route as was buried. The first pitch was interesting though!

first V, quality route!
Tom Redmond - AltLd - 28/Feb/14 with Joshua Willett

This was proper hairy! Didn't expect to find myself balancing on my right mono point while searching for somewhere to place a tool, left foot hanging in space, during my first week of Scottish Winter. Totally awesome and what a way to end the week :)

First pitch is ace- steep and reasonably technical but on really good hooks. Actually found the pitch after the traverse the scariest bit- may have just been conditions on the day but there there were some pretty sketchy moves way above gear- not sure what I did wrong!

Winter climbing lesson 0446.. Gale force spindrift hurts.
wolf.leeb - AltLd dnf - 15/Feb/11 with nic

Retreat just before ledge, barely able to keep my eyes open in the maelstrom. Nice climbing mind..
mynyddresident - Lead dnf - 15/Feb/11

Awesome moves, bit tricky under powder!
rcammack - AltLd O/S - 12/Feb/11 with Harry Holmes

Yet another day in faithful sneachda. Really enjoyed this route, two really good pitches. First crux pitch is a bit awkward and crux on second pitch is on bomber axe placements, personally think two stars. Conditions ok. Pat had a wee ride 200ft ish on a slab avalanche was ok but a stark reminder of the dangers. Keep safe!!
geoff.comley - AltLd O/S - 27/Dec/10 with Pat Ingram

nice steep grade V loads of pro.
