Seconded this route at the end of the winter season. Great condition considering. Was my first winter climb. Found it easy most of the way, with only one patch of near horizontal ice that took a little more thought. Excellent weather, with little wind and a slight snow fall. Plenty of snow. Just on the edge of freezing. Great fun for a first attempt. Ian Stewart, who led, felt it was a good quality grade II.

Went up the left instead of the right this time, still not much gear. Had grand ambitions to do something else, but left my spare axes at home. Glad someone was on Invernookie, because I think I would have found it quite spicy with one axe. Good neve, crux easy due to build up. Simon's first winter route.

The crux chockstone looked to be easy III under today's conditions. We decide to climb a 'more sporting' crack which splits the wall that lies to the left of the crux chockstone. We found this variation to be a bit more sporting than we expected, but thankfully it is well protected (III,5). I think that this variation is worth mentioning, as I guess that on a very thin day it might be preferable to the cracks on either side of the chockstone.

Difficult with the lack of snow. Lead the second pitch up a direct line but the climb got much harder where the gully was blocked with large boulders that would usually be covered with snow. Solid but sparse gear placements in the rock at the sides with the odd ice screw.

Climbed with guide - Martin Welsh and other course member Katie. Good mixed climb with snow, ice and a tricky chockstone on last pitch. Snow and ice starting to melt ! Finished with RH dry tooling variation up the wall :-)
