Hidden - Lead O/S - 15/Apr/13

Guide book said grade 1 so i only took one axe. Was a lot steeper than other grade 1's. Felt more like grade 2. A second axe would have made life a lot easier. Rock hard neve .
ralphio - Solo - 10/Mar/13

For the third time...this time, I WILL remember in future it's just a big long calf burning exercise.

darrenasquith - Lead O/S - 15/Dec/12

Lead roped together. Quite a bit of powder towards the bottom but less towards the top of the route. Turf largely frozen.

MattKnox - 30/Nov/12

Decent snow but for a 15 metre section of loose rock and clumps of grass, one walking axe and no crampons
Blurgy319 - Solo rpt - 21/Mar/12

Not in good condition - good snow for first third, then scary grass/mud/loose snow, and then icy top third. Way harder than I was expecting and a bit mad with only one walking axe

keith hal - AltLd O/S - 27/Nov/10 with Peter Berwick

Mixed and interesting, solid Grade II in the conditions. A ladder of solid turf placements with powder snow and the occasional step of water ice. Some loose stuff but surprisingly solid all round. A pleasure!

A good climb to assess the snow pack
JDSwain - Solo O/S - 18/Feb/07

Dashed up to take a look at the Coire and my first taste of Scottish snow. Snow was like porrige low down but improved on the way up. Nice and easy snow climb with a touch of ice. Great for a first route.

Nearly came a cropper attempting right hand fork when crampon came off before I had protection in (caught it by its strap as it fell off boot!): route was not in condition. Returned to the left fork after epic and difficult retreat. Left was very pleasant, but glad to be alive really.
