My first lead on multi pitch ice - lead up the first pitch in decent conditions, a bit wet at the second pitch in the grotto - no ice left for the last pitch and crux - some nice overhang roof to get on top

Climbed to the cave in one pitch, which involved some simul climbing, as our rope was only 50m.
Good climb in a fantastic setting. Somewhat ruined by the many hook placements.

1st n' 3rd leads, awkward finish over a well iced bolder on a long run out, could have done with some nuts..!

Led p2 last year so led p1 this year. Pitch 3 was was leaner & much tougher than last year. Went direct over the rhs of the chockstone.

Big thanks to the people who told the hydro technicians that we were down there. Their pump house broke down the same day we were there and were planning on flushing water on us.
Ross Young - 2nd O/S - 20/Jan/11 with Mark from Glenmore
Didn't get washed off! Excellent climbing with a squeeze though a hole under the major chockstone after the third belay as there wasn't any ice on the slabs to the left. Di guiding myself and Graeme as part of the MCofS trip to Rjukan 2011

led.p2. Excellent conditions, thick ice in chimney on p.3 so relatively easy - WI3+ in these conditions.
Pete Nugent - AltLd - 11/Feb/10 with Chris Vernon
Climbed in 2 pitches. Climbed out through the back of the cave on the second pitch which was great fun. Ice conditions were all over the place on the route. At one point I realised I was climbing on ice a couple of inches thick beneath which was running water. Great route.

Fantastic route. Very cold on 1st/2nd pitch as stuck behind another party. Watched Norwegians romp up Lipton. The cave is lovely and the 3rd pitch was a belter
