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.

Will Smith 20/Feb/11 Lead O/S

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!
