[Traverse of the Sods (II/III), 2 kb]180m. This an obvious left to right rising traverse line. Climb a pitch from the corrie floor to gain the traverse line and follow it to the top. Although reasonably straightforward the climb is very hard to protect. Belays are often just on axes in turf. © ROCKFAX

First pitch, to get onto the traverse, was steep and unprotected with much rock, a little ice, and loads of vegetation, and was thoroughly unpleasant. The rest was good and improved as it went along, the last pitch probably worth a star or two. Except for the first pitch, it was easy climbing (II) but with little protection and some poor belays, though a surprising amount of ice provided a couple of screw placements. Atmospheric in the clag with nice exposure, and we had the crag to ourselves.
