The tunnel is now blocked. I've reset the grades. Please vote!! I will update the grading when there is enough of a concensus for the new grading

Great fun. Took Graham a while to work out tunnel was blocked. I would guess V,7 for the second pitch.

Interesting digging for the closed off tunnel. Great climbing through the direct route. Great climbing on all the pitches. Full on winter conditions.

"tunnel" is now blocked off, making for a much harder route. unconsolidated snow rather than neve

Ginger McGrath 03/Nov/12 AltLd O/S

great route! every pitch is interesting, climbed under powder with no neve, without the tunnel i think the crux is the second pitch over the bulge and its now closer to V/7. the blocks look lose but seem to be pretty safe when frozen together

As said in previous comment, through route on pitch 2 is blocked. Climbed left hand groove on the outside avoiding the dangerous looking blocks on the right. Much harder than grade V this way.

The through route on the 2nd pitch is blocked due to rockfall, so abbed off. There is an alturnative outside the cave, but it looked a lot harder.

Pretty snowy conditions but a quality route nontheless- would suggest a grade of V 5 rather than IV 6

Led final pitch, what an amazing route- bomber neve all the way, big thanks to the chap who rescued my helmet after i sent it 300m to the corrie floor while gearing up...oops.

Great fun route! Best winter route in years.

Ken Applegate 23/Jan/10 AltLd

Outstanding route, and not another soul on Church Door Buttress. Grading today was probably more like iv,4/5, due to the amount of solid neve about.

Stupendous route, every pitch interesting and varied. Very intimidating traverse across the arch to the chimney on pitch 4.
