140m. Climb the right hand of the two most obvious groove systems left of the lowest point on the crag. Climb the groove until moves lead right into a secondary groove system, follow this to reach a snow field. Trend right across this until below a recess in the upper tier. Climb ice into the recess exit via an icy groove on the right. Traverse right and climb a weakness in the wall above. Continue up easier ground to the top. © Rockfax

Looked good from a distance being covered in snow and a sprinkling of ice, however all the snow was unconsolidated, the turf unfrozen and the ice rotten and running with water. Everything was disintegrating in a dangerous way and I backed off the first pitch, abandoning two nuts (which would be great to get back if you find them!). This needs a serious freeze to bring it into condition.
LEAN!!!! definatley one of the final routes of the season. Still good fun though
