Great route that has sustained interest. Only the last pitch is easy at about II, all the rest are probably 6 ish. The route does use turf in places so a good freeze is good. Neve might be handy but we only had powder. Started up the chimney to the right in error two days ago so came back to finish it and retrieve gear.

far too slow, tonnes of powder snow and no neive bailed at the crevase,
A Crook - AltLd dnf - 28/Feb/10 with Neil Griffiths

Climbed with almost no useable ice and dry frozen turf so seemed quite tough (V6?). A fantatastic route though with about 6 really varied pitches in fantastic surroundings, belays good. Better overall than Bowfell Buttress I thought.
DSM - Lead O/S - 31/Jan/10 with Andy Gittins

Hidden - 31/Jan/10

Lots of snow on the route and the approach made for slow going.
