[Alex pulling over the final section of pitch 1, 2 kb]The parallel line to Laddie's Gully is another great outing with wonderful climbing 1) 2, 60m. Follow the stepped gully past some interesting pulls to a belay where it steepens 2) 3, 25m. The steep section gives a great ice-pitch with a stiff pull to finish 3) 1, 110m. Continue up the gully and snow slope to gain the ridge, well right of the summit. © ROCKFAX

Snow and ice conditions weren't perfect making the transition to easy ground after the crux groove a bit more exciting than I would have preferred. A nice line.

The grade 3 pitch wasnt there so went back down around and up then abseiled down the top pitch and climbed back out bit of a faff but no one else around so didnt feel to daft.

not done this since 1988,so a long awaited return. A nice ice pitch, which is very narrow forms the crux,then fairly straightforward to the summit ridge. worth the two stars
kenny boy - AltLd - 08/Mar/10

Jedi Soloed. Turfy, Nice little ridge to finish.

We soloed up to the steep corner, which I lead, Diccon then finished off by breaking out of the gully to the left across the face to avoid the unbroken cornice. Conditions lean ice with 2cm of fresh snow on top.
Paul-Michael - AltLd O/S - 20/Feb/10 with Diccon Proctor

Hidden - 18/Feb/10

Well defined crux in the middle but solid ice so very enjoyable. Would probably be a bit desperate if dryer.
