Simply amazing! The highlight of an awesome first week of Scottish Winter climbing. A baptism of fire with the immensely talented Paul Swail. I wish it was next winter.
gbloomer - 2nd O/S - 26/Feb/14 with Paul Swail

Started up Doctor Janis and finished up The Genie, climbed the main corner at about V 5 due to the bomber névé. Protection was virtually non-existent.

V11 - 16/Feb/14

lots of snow ice more like V,4
phil64 - Lead rpt - 21/Jan/14

An enjoyable route, which we climbed after failing on White Magic. Probably easy in the grade in today's conditions.
GaryK - AltLd O/S - 16/Jan/14 with Roger Webb

Lots of hard neve - more like V 6 in these conditions. Fantastic fun!

Lead corner on p2 - positive thoughout but slabs verglassed. Cruxes were hard enough on second.. Wild day!
peter.herd - AltLd - 27/Jan/13 with John M

fell off the bulge on pitch 1, hard move, at least tech 6...or maybe we were on the wrong bulge. Lead pitch 2 which I thought was the crux in current condition (hard V,7). Pitch 3 was good, felt about V,6. Glad to do pitches 2 and 3 clean.
tim newton - AltLd dog - 17/Jan/13 with edvin mellergard, james smith

edvin led 1st, tim 2nd, me 3rd. first pitch wasnt great i thought but other two were great. really tenuous for feet on 2nd pitch and then 3rd was sustained but with mostly bomber hooks.
James S - AltLd O/S - 17/Jan/13 with tim, edvin

Andrew Wilson - AltLd dnf - 05/Dec/12 with cliff shasby

Almost to the top of the route when my crampon twisted off in the corner crack and forced a retreat a few meters from the end of the difficulties ! All three pitches gave some awesome climbing even if a little buried by powder.
Petarghh - AltLd dnf - 28/Nov/12

Harry Holmes - AltLd dnf - 28/Nov/12 with Pete Hill

Great climb, awesome hooking and torquing. Good conditions with bomber gear.
