First ever winter route. Started in the dark, finished in the dark. Proper winter conditions, really enjoyable.

Outstanding first winter tick for Nicole. Great route and ignore latest guide book description of traversing right for 10m. It's 2 m then straight up after the first belay to finish at top in 2 pitches.

Pete led 1st pitch and we split flakes/arete exit. Crux is not the traverse on pitch 2 but the first 6m of the crack with poor gear and thin monopoint holds. Flakes finish is tricky.

awesome climbing, beyond me to lead at present! very exhausting route with very uncomfortable belays, not recommended to climb as a 3, top pitch done by headtorch.

I lead the 1st and 3rd pitches. The 'crux traverse' is barely 2m not 10m. Great route, super sustained. I was pretty broken afterwards.
