Lovely day. Gondola and chair lift helpful! Pretty straightforward descent via Easy Gully. Ice took screws well. Lovely wee route and a good intro for Alex to ice - using his Switches in anger for the first time!

Ran out of screws and as a result ran the crux pitch out to a huge level. Superb climb. Solid III and definitely 3*. Topped out to breathtaking sunset views over the Ben. The trade off was the long walk off having missed the gondola.

First winter route, awesome.

groovy_nut 23/Jan/10 AltLd O/S

Patrick led the two main pitches. Ice and snow conditions made the route hard and very scary. Screws would never have held a fall and there was a section of vertical rimed up ice at the top of the main gulley - very serious and quite challenging. Route was easily in Grade IV condition, and serious for that.

Pitches fairly short. Good ice gully. Pitch 1 - belayed on existing tat and nut, pitch 3 belayed off good spike just over top of main gully. The final pitch was just a snow field to the cornice at the top, where we found a gap. Access: Down climbed from top (down an easy gully) and traversed to get to base of route. Used cable car and chair lift to get as high as possible to avoid slog.
