Uisdean hawthorn - AltLd O/S - 18/Jan/14 with Dad

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.
robpartridge - Lead dnf - 12/Jan/14 with Johnny Harris

Hoared up completely so very few placements for gear.
Dave Almond - AltLd - 09/Jan/14 with Masa-Alpin

Approached from the right (Sake) with my lead, Dave lead the crux, and I lead the last pitch to the left. Hoared up extremely.
