Stonking lead by Jamie. Full body pump in the chimney...

MSchobitz 22/Feb AltLd dnf

I led up to the real chimney. Felt about IV 4/5. Feeling like we were being shat on by a snowman did not help the low psyche levels. Abbed-off from that belay and got blown out of the coire.

Strenuous with the outrageous bridging, great fun for a quick route.

Climbed to the start of the hard climbing in some of the worst spindrift conditions I've ever been in. Retreated from there, never been colder!

I took a wee fall from the crux, but after a rest managed to pull through. Felt pretty desperate!

gooood fun

GaryK 06/Nov/13 AltLd O/S

An excellent route. The initial pitch was harder than expected, maybe it banks out more later in the season.

Jacob did the second (spicy,) I did the first. A great route, interesting bottom to top.

Adam Booth 26/Jan/13 Lead O/S

Amazing route! Stiff for a V, I thought (way harder than savage slit for instance) and sustained. I agree with tech 7. Covered in unconsolidated powder, suppose it might have been easier with a bit of neve.

Looks very dry from the bottom but there are enough good neve for ledges and the snow channel on second pitch. The guide book's description on the chimney bridging - struggle inch by inch - is very true! Best stretch the first pitch a bit further and climb beyond the first flake, leaving more gear for the chimney pitch and you can also enjoy watching your partner suffering at the awkward bridging!

Guided party in front struggled somewhat and belayer had to be relieved on stance. Stan cruised crux.

geoff.comley 26/Jan/11 AltLd O/S

well well well! Thin first couple of moves getting established on the wall, reasonable into the main groove. Found it tricky getting from the back and foot position onto the slab (might of went to high?). Hard 7 imo.

Alco-nomic 26/Jan/11 AltLd

From chimney corner, gain the slab from below the peg on it, a couple of tricky steps right of it and then straight up. Can be done in one 50m pitch.

jamestheyip 08/Jan/11 AltLd dnf

Started a few meters on the second chimney pitch. All cracks fully rimed up making gear finding very difficult. Downclimbed and bailed off.

Awesome route - crazy chimneying leads to a satisfying thin slab move to finish...

great route for wild days, although spin drifts can be perpetual (on a bad day!)

Happy hooking! Meaning to take a rest day on the International meet (after many days climbing) but couldn't resist getting out again!
