Very wet having retained a lot of rain and melt water from previous weeks in the cracks even though there had been days of continuous sunshine.

Brilliant night time adventure. Set off at 9pm, topped out at 2am, back in Kendal at 4. Led p1 and 3. P4 in particular is superb.

David Kay - AltLd O/S - 01/Feb/15 with Joe Dobson
Awesome! Best mixed route I've done! Felt it was more 5/6, 5, 5/6, 5 in terms of tech grades.
joe.91 - AltLd O/S - 01/Feb/15 with David Kay
Pitch 1 is never tech 4. Brilliant route though with the final pitch being the highlight for me.

great day out in excellent nick. Cracks clear of ice (tiny bits of verglass) frozen turf, snow on everything. Lots of rime at the top. So well protected but always absorbing. Some tough moves

Cracking route. Plenty of snow but not consolidated or frozen so mixed climbing all the way.
First winter fall, (and hopefully my last)! on the finial moves of pitch 3. Led the final pitch to make up for the eairlier skydive.

Brilliant fun, all on the soft end of the rope (thanks Tim). Highlight was my crampon falling off on the final groove and having to do some knee climbing till it could be fixed...
Mowglee - 2nd - 05/Dec/10 with Tom Nichols, Tim
Hidden - Lead O/S - 04/Dec/10
Tried to lead the first pitch, couldn't find any reasonable gear before the initial groove so I handed the reins over to Andy. Route got harder and harder so I stayed gibbering as a second. Pitches felt something like 5, 5, 6, 6 to me but it was pretty much out of my league so difficult for me to say! Very little ice or frozen turn so it was hunting for small hooks under a thick covering of snow the whole way. We bailed from a large block very near the top as darkness, exhaustion, dehydration and the beginnings of hypothermia were sucking the fun out of the party. Got back to civilisation just in time to call off the mountain rescue callout our worried friends had put in. An incredible day!

Meant to lead a pitch. Martin won coin toss for first, i backed off second on first move, let martin have a crack at 3rd cos its THE pitch, then it was dark for the last one and knew martin would be quicker. Top quality route, no consolidated snow, basically dry tooling.
Alex Mason - 2nd O/S - 08/Jan/10 with Martin Haworth
Epic. Arrived late,-10 degrees when we set off, started climbing at 12. Tremendous route, sustained climbing at my limit,fourth pitch done in the dark, overall 6 hours!Led all pitches.

Beautiful cloudless day - even had sunshine for the belays atop p2 & p4! No ice nor good turf, just unconsolidated powdery snow so it felt a little insecure in places but overall a fantastic outing. There were two other teams on the route after us.
