Alternate leads, clean on sight. Birthday trip out with Ciaran. Horizontal rain and mist, climbing in approach shoes and waterproofs. Pretty tough going for V Diff and we went too far left on the top pitch putting us in slippery and quite run out territory. Really enjoyed it though.

Great route. As others have said not as busy as the slabs. First pitch i lead and carried onto the scramble bit. If you head left there is a great little out crop worth doing and adds to the route and by passes the walk/scramble bits. Last pitch Graham lead and felt committing. Great rock , great climbing and brilliant location. We then combined the arete.

Soloed, taking rope and lead rack, climbed in climbing shoes and hauled ruck sack up afterwards on the climbing pitches. First pitch and last pitch are the best. The middle section feels contrived and nothing special with lots of walking. Seems more logical to by-pass it. Final pitch is scary. It's very commiting to get back left onto the rib after stepping up right. I actually placed gear and used a slack rope to protect myself. Then backed off the crack line and climbed up right before the crack line goes right. Had to ab down to collect gear and top rope soloed the crack line:It's doable but definitely felt harder than VD. Exciting end to the weekend!

Had to break trail through waist deep snow to get to it. Route was under a lot of snow/ice - absolutely superb Alpine feel, fun in floppy boots with no winter gear! Quite hard to get onto the route with the starting ramp under ice. Done as 3 pitches. A gem in winterish conditions

Pitch 4 is a bit of a struggle onto the nose if you're only 5'4"!!
We bailed out halfway up P4 due to freezing wind and slippy rock (Kiwi in big boots). Will return on a sunny day - lovley rock.
Babika - AltLd - 10/Mar/12 with Kiwi Pete
Wet rock, incredibly slippy, forget about hand jams! Climbed in 4 pitches with rucksacks and rock shoes, I led P1 and "Pitch" 3. Felt way more sketchy that VDiff but this is mainly due to the rain making smearing and jamming nigh on impossible.

Second route of the day as part of teaching session with two students (Milestone in the morning). Weather was poor (very windy/rain showers) but students did very well and managed to lead all pitches without me having to take over. Lots of good teaching points made over the day (the pair's climbing ability was well above their knowledge of good belays/gear placements and had to re-arrange quite a bit before thr leader brought up second). Quite a stiff route for the grade and quite tricky in big boots in the wet! :)

Slightly trickier than It was in Summer due to greasy rock, snow, and seepage. Very slow progress and ran out of quickdraws on pitch 1 and 4! made a mess of rope work and gear placements on pitch 4 wich resulted in severe ropedrag, no quick draws, then gear pulling out beneath me. Scary 20m run out on wet rock! Still great route though. Weather stopped us going up to finish with the Arete

An interesting day. Bit of an (embarrasing) epic :)Mark lead the first 4m or so, then I lead past him. Rock very greasy; didn't help that it rained as I lead. I could't get up the corner, put in two pieces of gear and slowly downclimbed/lowered to Mark's belay at pinacles. Mark led again followed by me who lead to a ledge. Couldn't climb higher as rock too greasy. I set up a belay, brought mark up and lower him off the route whilst he tested the ab rope. Mark climbed round and dropped a rope to me. I ab'd the 25m down the gully on a 50m rope (to avoid an ab' from the pinnacle and having to leave gear behind.

Had to escape after 1st pitch, as 3rd man had forgottton rock shoes and couldn't get past first bulge. I abbed down to try to heelp, but he had to go off right. Was pleasant while it lasted though.

Fantastic climbing, Pitches 2, and three are not much but a scramble. However Pitch 4 around the nose is very interesting on lead probably a severe.

Nice - really nice. Lead second and fourth pitches. Need to work on route finding, the fourth pitch should have followed the OBVIOUS crack, not the small crack directly up the nose. Still, great climbing.

Climbed in three pitches. First pitch of 40m was nice with a good belay on a large flake with good views. Second pitch of 50m rather rough, heathery and scrambly. Third pitch was a delight, if a little bold in places for a VDiff but thoroughly enjoyable. Hardly any polish!
