Slowed down by deep snow and unexpected traffic on route. We were ready to start the first pitch of the buttress proper just before 4pm, decided to back off rather than attempt crux final pitch in the dark. Dangerous snow conditions on the traverse back down.

Great climb on great mountain. Tough going on powder/unconsolidated snow.

A fine climb! exciting traverse to the base of the route, some ambiguity over the exact line on the first pitch, 4 pitches with some good technical climbing. The shattered chimney and steep groove after were the highlights!

Great situation with the odd bit of good climbing. Great mountaineering style day. Initially 4, reduced to 3 parties on the route!

A great day on a route I've wanted to do for a while. Good useful snow on the ledges and nice weather. You can't go wrong in Torridon, now for the other two...

Planned to do the icefall start but not quite in condition. Soloed across the terrace which was very exposed. Did the buttress as 3 pitches, I led middle pitch.

Didn't happen to come across a ATC guide on your travels by any chance? dropped on traverse just before 1st pitch.

Took a fair while to walk in through fresh snow in the corie and along the broad terrace. Spent 3 hours digging out the first two pitches before deciding to bail.

Arduous approach under deep powder. Bouldery route, tech 5, very well protected. Fantastic!
