Hidden - 28/Feb/14

Led 2nd pitch up to base of wide chimney on the slant. Lots of soft snow, some neve in places. The Hidden Chimney itself provides excellent bridging with mostly good axe placements until near the top when it became an exhausting struggle on powder. 1st pitched lead in winter!
Stuart Hurworth - AltLd O/S - 18/Jan/14 with Manchester Climbing Club

Great route - shame the chimney is so short.
stratandrew - AltLd O/S - 18/Jan/14 with Stuart Hurworth

After first pitch avalanche somewhere near the top of The Slant!! Pushed on as getting dark-Chimney in poor condition, no gear as snow and iced over rock, very vertical and soft snow around chockstones. Managed crux's with one runner at botttom, 3 foot from the top part of cornice gave way and took me with it!! fell 50 metres down the chimney, gear popped out, fell past the belay. Managed to get up and the 3 of us abseiled the 2 pitches down to escape. At bottom gusting 70-80mph knocking us off our feet while walking out in the dark. 11 hours on the mountain. 2 swollen ankles a bashed elbow and slightly sore knee. But ok. Glad to make it out alive. should have turned round much earlier!!!

carl_123 - Lead O/S - Dec/13

4 pitches: approach to the slant - pitched the gully as water running under the ice+snow=very unstable ground. 2 - the Slant traverse. 3 & 4 - split the chimney. Led 1 and 3. Class climb. Made more difficult, I would think, by the lack of solid ice.
island_explorer - AltLd - 30/Nov/13 with David Barratt

Great climb, spoilt for choice with gear placements.

Awesome climb, getting into condition. Well frozen, not a lot of ice though. The last pitch is really good fun.
brucebarrington - 23/Nov/13

An excellent lead by Debs in very lean and powdery conditions, superb climbing
MrRiley - 2nd O/S - 10/Nov/13 with Debbie Lee

solo pitches 1 and 2, lead chimney. grade III today and brilliant
Webster - Lead O/S - 10/Nov/13

as too crowded on Direct went for this one.we soloed the Slant (other teem went our steps). Kretek climbed with walking axes:D nice climb for season start:)
Wojttek - Lead O/S - 10/Nov/13 with Danii, Ilona

Definitely good value in today's conditions. Lots of powder. Soloed to top of direct start. Split into 3 pitches, Mike led traverse, I led chimney to above chockstone, Mike led from there to top.
Fiona Reid - AltLd O/S - 09/Nov/13 with Mike

An enjoyable if shortlived introduction to Cairngorms mixed.
Mike_Watson_99 - AltLd O/S - 09/Nov/13 with Fiona

Fairly lean and scary, acrobatic moves (on 2nd) to get over the chockstone. Not much snow but rime everwhere. Awesome.
Blackmud - 2nd O/S - Nov/13

PeteLoveless - Lead rpt - 25/Apr/13

Jim lead the first pitch to the chimney & I climbed the chimney to the last 15/20m where Jim topped out.
Mapleleaf - AltLd - 07/Apr/13 with Jim Hall

Hidden - Lead O/S - 16/Mar/13

Second time doing this route and felt significantly less secure than the first as fairly powdery today. All lead by Andrew.
stephenmckenzie - 2nd rpt - 16/Mar/13 with Tom Shaw, Andrew Appleby

Climbed after the Direct Start. I lead the main bit (55 metres) and Led, rest (10m) to top out, welcome by gale wind and blizzard. After my lead, where I had to excavate powder snow a lot, by the time Lee seconded all the clean-up was undone due to snowfall, so Lee had to start from scratch! We found there were several hard moves, up to solid tech 4 - in today's conditions it was either top-end III or soft IV and nowhere close to II.

Adrianw - AltLd O/S - 09/Feb/13 with Mike Frost, Sarah Hawker

my first "proper" winter climb! windy top out and lots of snow and sloughage.
fire_munki - 2nd - 06/Feb/13 with Al Halewood

Jasperboy - AltLd - 05/Feb/13 with Gary Gray

Pitch one banked out so was able to run pitches 1 & 2 together with a 60m rope. Pitch 3 took us to the top. Good wee route that only took us 50 minutes which was ideal given the poor weather conditions. The weather obviously put everyone else off as we were the only people in the entire Corrie.
wheelsucker - AltLd - 05/Feb/13 with Gordon Gray

Conditions weren't too bad, just enough neve to stop it being harder that its grade. Wasn't easy with 60mph winds blasting snow into your face up the chimney!
blackreaver - Lead O/S - 03/Feb/13 with Ben M, NUMC

Both soloed P1, led P2. Excellent route, good gear, good condition.

ross brinson - AltLd - 13/Jan/12

P2, P4. Took a higher belay stance for P2. Felt exposed at start due to lack of axe placements. P3 was excellent pitch for torquing and deserves the 2*'s all by itself for quality of climbing given.

OZZY1962 - AltLd - 15/Dec/11 with Andy, JEROME

A challenging day out on Sechtha. Had to wait for the ski road to open and a pretty wild and windy approach followed. There were a few parties out but most turned back once the full on conditions at the base of the crag were encountered and gearing up was an event in itself . On the route it wasn't too bad, with me volunteering Percy to lead both pitches thinking speed to be of the essence, wise move. First pitch (2) was pretty runout once round the corner, I'd guess as a result of the deposits of snow and spindrift. Second Pitch (3) was a cracker with all that torqueing and hooking stuff a first for me. Oh and the T. MacCarthy experimental axes were a resounding success! Percy's advice on resting my grip frequently seemed to avoid the hot aches on the second pitch. Getting blown over on the top, a long return left me pretty knackered. It seems that if you are a couple of stone shy of a propper manly weight and you use those ski poles that you miss out on disappearing up to your thighs every 10 yards.

After climbing the Haston Line which Elsie lead the first crux pitch, I lead the second to the base of Hidden Chimney and lead the final crux pitch. Went up the left of the crux instead of the narrow ledges on the right. Very lean conditions. Chock stone not banked out at all. Quite airy climbing on the chimney crux.

Walked in intending to do The Seam, realised I'd forgotten my harness, so after improvising with a sling and reassessing we ended up on HC. Although I'd didn't lead properly I did top out after running out the last 15m. Strong winds, gusts of between 50-60mph.
Merlin - 2nd - 03/Dec/11 with Vaughny

In combination with the Haston Line. Route very lean with a through-route under the chockstone near the top! Warrants III, 4 at the moment

Seeing as its so late in the season the climb was pretty wet but still had some solid stuff on the upper crux. Crux is cool but ended up using hands more than axes due to lack of wintery stuff.:)

Good climb, chockstone not banked out so section above over hung slightly for very nice steeper than expected finish. climb took 3 hrs from corrie floor to walking off - car to car 5.5 hrs

First grade III, quite exciting in the conditions!
Elsier - AltLd O/S - 29/Mar/09 with Miles, Michael

First grade III - I led the second pitch of three, which was mostly surprisingly good ice. Elsie led the crux at the top, Michael the exposed balancey section at the bottom. Generally good conditions, until we topped out into the wind!
