The approach from the coire up SE facing slopes with deep snow in the full sun was very hard work. Much better once we gained the ridge and a nice descent.

So much snow. Waded through it on corrie approach (also some massive avalanche debris to cross), and interesting time on the soft and collapsing narrow "arÍte" section after crux. Crux "crack" surprisingly hard; especially when hot aches kick in at crucial point. Descended down N ridge. Good mountain day out.

Moved together. Great little route with good gear and plenty of variety. Shame it isn't a bit longer.
barney800 - 20/Feb/11 with Will Coombs
Very nice little ridge, open to lots of variation. In the high wind and low visibility, we skirted a couple of the buttresses but taken direct could give a good long route, possibly at a higher grade. Got the rope out for one pitch up a nice v corner with excellent turf in the back. Total white out on the top and rued my decision not to pack goggles!

Great route, mostly grade II with some optional mixed sections which felt hard (but excellent and well protected) for II.

Quality mountaineering route with some good mixed moves. Little snow bearing in mind recent weather. Only saw two other teams all day.
