Led 2nd pitch in 2 pitches as found big boulder for solid belay. Nothing touching III after first pitch which was the highlight.

Was terrifying in the condition we found it in. Poor belays if the ice is cruddy.

mynyddresident - Lead - 07/Dec/10 with nige

Climbed in 2 pitches and a snow trudge. I Lead the first pitch. Ice was thin and beginning to melt. From the ground it looked like their would be some rock placements but they did not materialise as rock is so compressed. Long run-outs on bad pro, had to reuse ice screw holes, the best piece was a bulldog half way up. Awkward stances. I felt this was a real challenge and thoroughly enjoyed it. Benighted on walk off.
Steve Palmer - AltLd O/S - 07/Dec/10 with Graeme Baxter

lovely route. Steve lead p1 on not so great ice but conditions improved after the first section and made for a great finish to the day. gear a bit sparse but not too bad.
gb83 - AltLd O/S - 07/Dec/10 with Steve Palmer

A good and worthwhile route, done in 2 40m+ pitches. No rock gear used at all, protection and belays entirely on screws so take plenty. Well worth a star.

Stone Muppet - 2nd O/S - 04/Dec/10 with tl

Thin, and thinner, bold for the grade today. very good route though. No meaningful gear for 55m

Awful ice, had to abseil off due my partner getting ill. If anyone finds a red and yellow sling, 2 screwgates and a cordlette i'd be very grateful if they could send them back my way.
