Wet rock becoming a theme! This felt like a difficult scramble, but it was fun - a good way to spend a wet evening.

From the mid-col upwards. Lots of snow and climbed in big boots but not a winter route in these conditions

On a walk with the family. Very nice and the rock was much better than it looked from the floor. Lovely and long too

Quite scary today due to very strong winds, and another climb where it was hard to place any gear. Some really good climbing though, especially first pitch.

Very Easy for a VDiff, more like a Grade 2 scramble? Brilliant climbing though. Done moving together, changing leads as gear ran out. Need to improve our ropework before doing this on anything harder though! Lovely straightforward climbing
