StephenS - 2nd - 11/Jan/14

Drew led 1 & 3, I led the 2nd pitch with the interesting but good crux (traversing left on soft snow, before moving up and right next to the slab), good in situ gear. Route very banked out so more like grade III in between the 3 technical bits. Descent via Aladdin's Couloir.

10 years since I last did this route. Seemed to be little like 2003, a bit thinner, and due to poor level of fitness felt harder.

Dave Latimer - AltLd O/S - 20/Dec/11

Just a narrow sliver of ice on the crux, great fun.

Too thin. Will need to wait 'till next season for this one...
alanramsay - AltLd dnf - 06/Mar/11 with Alastair Ferguson

v thin and wet at chockstone, axe popped and took a small lob. got over it 2nd try.
nickwhimster - AltLd - 05/Mar/11 with monty

thin, no ice around the block
Ollie B - AltLd O/S - 12/Feb/11 with M.Rankine

Alpine start at 12.45 cruised up the pitches until the crux. Which proved to have the hardest moves I've done this winter. Probably lack of ice in crucial place. Interestingly the party in front somehow managed to avoid standing on the icy footholds. Does the peg provide a clue?

freudy_love - AltLd rpt - 30/Jan/11 with Davy Moy

Dreadful wind walking in. Quite a few turned back including Mr Nisbet. Bad spindrift pitch 1 gave me a cold face and hands. Pitch 2 has a very long reach for me and I spent ages psyching up for the one handed swing. Better than Doctor's Choice surely?

Tile Diver - AltLd O/S - 20/Jan/11 with Stu Findlay

I took first pitch, thin but enough neve to make it simple enough, second step was really thin for feet. Harder than last time with decent build up.

very lean today would make it harder than any iv/5 i've been on. possibly v/5? the last steepening being very hard without a good build up and thus the crux. great climb though.

Looks a nice route. Lots of powder on the day and couldn't make it past the second bulge.

This turned out to be a great day and a route we hadnt planned. Turned up in the corrie and by luch the conditions looked pretty good. There was nobody near Pateys so we headed straight for it. crux pitch is quite steep but I found a useful peg on the right wall and the cave a the top provides an excellent belay. Top route.

The route was not in good condition. There was a fair covering of powder on the top crux move.
