Cracking climb, definitely stiff for Grade III, deserves the extra tech grade, couple of tricky steps before and after the cave. Cave was crazy and somewhat awkward! Great day out.

Great climb! Felt pretty stiff for grade III, had to do lots of digging to get into/through and out of the cave! http://www.masterplan-mountaineering.co.uk/2014/02/climbing-george-liathach/

Martin Moran notes that a large rockfall has taken place on the left side of George, just before the steep section. The belay bay has disappeared. This has deposited a huge chockstone in the gully just below, creating a short additional pitch of some difficulty. Even with some helpful ice it requires a hard pull; without ice it could be problematic (tech 5).
I would now reckon III,5 for George and IV,6 for Sinister Prong. The two crux sections on Sinister Prong are really quite hard in most conditions (either of them can be 6), and with the addition of the lower chockstone I reckon it is worth IV overall.

Finished up Sinister Prong IV 5- which is a good alternative.
Two short but sharp ice bulges before rejoining top of George.Also a good in situ belay at base of pitch and a couple of old pegs o

Guiding day with Matt. Conditions were perfect, with the ice being as fat as I've known. Descent on the S side of Liathach was very easy due to snow cover too.
Ken Applegate - Lead - 07/Feb/13 with Matt
Soft snow in lower part of gully but good conditions higher up. Cave pitch is great fun, esp the exit! Surmounting the chockstone also quite awkward.

First Scottish winter climb! Great fun, took my first fall onto an ice screw too. Lots of powder made approad a nightmare, and was very difficult on the climb too.
