Started direct up the thinly iced corner. In 3 pitches, lead P2 consisting of the traverse and the crux wall. Utterly brilliant climb, one of the best days out I've had on the Ben.

Lots of frozen snow on the rock, v.hard to find gear, and no decent ice. Made it to belay below crux pitch in the dark, then abbed off.
Hoared up completely so very few placements for gear.
Approached from the right (Sake) with my lead, Dave lead the crux, and I lead the last pitch to the left. Hoared up extremely.
Great route done with Lawrence Monckton. Great crux pitch, safe but technical.
In very lean condition.
|Adam Booth||24/Feb/12||Lead O/S||
3 pitches. Picks out some great lines on the cliff, but as a consequence weaves around a lot and isn't at all direct.

Hard as it was all covered with large amounts of rime.

Neil led the direct start which was good fun, never made it to the cracks so have to return for a rematch!

Very good route. Probably slightly easier (and better?) with ice but it was doable under powder & rime conditions.
Nice early season route. Even got to watch the third ascent of "The Secret". Good smooth leading by Tony Stone on the crux pitch!
Guided ascent. Hard to find pro in cracks pitch (iced up)
