Katie had to come down as her hands were totally frozen (piss for blood) so I led it all. Excellent route, excellent gear.

Less of a French alpine hut experience than Savage slit. shame about winter aiding scars.
danimal88 - Lead O/S - 25/Jul/10 with Claire Ellis

Another great route, I led up to above the wee roof which was a tough move to get on top. Murdo led up from there, the first 5 metres were soaking, to the scrambly gully and then we abbed off. Cracking abb too

Great climb, the second pitch was excellent. The move around the roof is a bit heady but the holds are all there. Abbed down Savage Slit and got the ropes stuck so ended up leading back up to free them.

Great route sustained at 4b with possibly two moves at 4c. Will led one of these past the roof and belayed there. There is gear galore on this route plus pitons and tat. There was a 10 feet high wet patch half way up the corner on the right wall. I added a hardly used sling and krab to the belay/abseil station at the top. This station is the abseil point for four of the most popular routes in the corrie and consists of two chockstones wrapped with a myriad of decaying tat. Not only are these routes very popular but Glenmore Lodge is a stonesthrow away, bearing this in mind the abseil station is NOT ACCEPTABLE. It should be replaced with a proper station.

brilliant fun.enjoyed this more that Savage Slit. Great accoustics for yodelling out into the valley below. This rock must be heinous in the wet but we found it bone dry and perfect.
