Ice not in fat condition though 1st 60 m pitch good fun. From the pegs circa 30m having to bridge as ice thin over waterfall. Pitch 2 looked not in so scuttled up the chimney rot the left with the intention of dropping into B Gully Chimney, but this looked a bit banked out, so soloed to the top.

Very little ice on the crux pitch which made it more difficult than it should be.

Very poor choice, all snow and little ice which is exactly how it looked from the bottom. Finished just before dark which made for long day. Adventurous but not one I'd like to repeat too often!

Some ice to be found under heavy-soaky snow. The water and waterfall was never far and a heavy movement would usually break the icing, unleashing the water to wherever you might be. Also had frequent small avalanches. It was just too warm... but otherwise, quite a day.

ice was good where present. a lot of loose unconsolidated snow and the turf not well frozen due to snow insulation. water running under the ice and hollow sections present throughout. upper gully much better with some neve.

Climbed as a 4, Graeme & Sam made it over the crux pitch, but then we all had to back off. Ice good in places but a bit thin in others and fairly fragile. Good route, will be back!

A bit crap really. Mobbed and some of the mobsters were not very competent.
Lots od loose ice mind. A long day with a late start and a much later finish.

Climbed it at last. My third visit to Glen Clova over the years trying to climb Look C, but this the first time it has been in condition. A lovely route. The main pitch was getting a little soggy, but was confidently led by Ruth

Deep drifting snow, hard work getting to bottom. We took too long on first pitch, so abseiled down and went home. Reasonable ice, water still running in sections.

Lee was good enough to allow me to climb the odd numbered pitches. Although the ice was a bitt cruddy and the climb could do with some more consolidation, it was an excellent day out with only one other group from Aberdeen Uni in the Corrie on B Gully (thank you for breaking trainl).
