More good grade three!! Went up on more interesting ice at the top pitch to the left probably getting closer to grade 4! More miles under the belt.....

Moving together/belaying practice, did the route in 34 mins with the left finish at the top to get some steeper ice in. Probably only II if finishing right.

UKC doesn't seem to have a route for the ice wall right of Doctor's Dilemma, accessed by breaking out left from WG before the first ice step. Old SWC book lists this as Junior's Jaunt, which seems to be wrong. Anyway, it provided a nice couple of pitches at II/III, and more interesting than WG itself... but nothing to get really excited about.

The snow sections had large steps all the way up, making that part of the process very easy indeed, the middle ice section was nice, and the top ice section had multiple variations to add interest if one wished. A bit of snow falling (making the drive down Glen Orchy perhaps more dangerous than the climb) the crag was very busy (for midweek) but this route was all ours.

Lower pitch banked out. First Icefall was getting a bit thinner, with a few holes, but still climbable. The top pitch was thick with good ice, with the odd patch of more fragile ice on the top of good ice.
