Repeat for me. Great route, with a small section of grade V-ish ice if u want it.

Hidden - 2nd O/S - 22/Jan/15

Loose powder at the bottom, ice mostly good for the middle pitches.
JackM92 - AltLd O/S - 21/Jan/15

Quite a lot of powder on route making progress hard work at times, nice ice in the middle section, although a bit thin and steep making it tough for the grade.
baileyswalk - AltLd O/S - 18/Jan/15 with Jonny

Ice very 'boomy' though it is April! Good route for a short day

Main icefall a bit thin and hollow, took a line up the left hand side as this seemed more solid
oliverk - Lead O/S - 02/Feb/13 with Sarah Moorhouse

Conditions were good weatherwise but not otherwise. The ice pitch looked good but on close acquaintance proved to be hollow, loose, detached and generally unclimbable. Forget it until thaw and refreeze.
furbrow - AltLd - 18/Jan/13 with Bruce McC

Great climb, nice ice on crux pitch, bomber ice screw placements.

rclarke - Lead O/S - 23/Feb/10 with Don

Hidden - 2nd - 23/Feb/10

Led 1st and 3rd pitch. Seconded ice pitch. Found top section of ice pitch hard going. Had to put all my weight on my axe placements to get up it. Couldnt have led it. Enjoyed it though. Perfect sunny day.

Adi Hooper - AltLd - 20/Feb/10 with Roger Ward

Stunning weather, lovely climb - not hard, but not easy either, ice was good, interesting climb, slightly chopped but not as bad as some climbs. Empty corrie, ideal route on the way South.

harder rocky 1st pitch bit wet! slushy ice
Billy Walker - Bad Seller - AltLd O/S - 12/Feb/09 with Martian, my bestest bud

a bit of a plod low down, but improved at main ice pitch, loads of blue ice, though bits were brittle, wide enough that the route could be easily wandered on to find the best line...turfy finish though...

Awesome first real winter lead.
