Rockfax Description
Three pitches. This one usually has fat ice that leads from the gorge up to the road. Due to slabby character this waterfall disappears in snowy conditions. There are many possible variations. Descend by walking back down the road © Rockfax

Three pitches, mostly thin with some turf. Easy angled fist full lead on ice. Stepped and bulges providing interest.

I did top three pitches. hard on calves. We had to contend with several teams knocking ice onto us and people abseilling down

Mhairi G 18/Feb/12 2nd O/S

3 really long pitches, all 3 were close to 60metres. Topped out on the road just as it was getting dark.

Lead pitches one and three. Could be done in two full 60m pitches. Mostly easy ground, placed 9 screws in whole route excluding belays.

Last route of the trip, scrambled first 30m the 3 pitches to the top, quite sketchy in places, i received a nicely bruised hand after a big lump of ice fell on it. Good fun though and a good way to end the trip!

Not much ice as the sun was strong. Quite cruddy and not worth the 3 stars in that condition.

Simon Caldwell 08/Mar/08 AltLd O/S

In 3 pitches, 55m, 50m, 45m. C led pitches 1 and 3. First pitch very wet, the rest good quality ice. Steady drizzle all the way up. A good route, low in the grade, a bit like a WI version of scrambling!
