Surprisingly good conditions considering it was raining about 200m below! Turf generally well frozen, and solid ice & neve near the top. Good climbing.

Great route, found it hard for the grade. Took us much longer than it should have, finished in the dark.
Martin Haworth - AltLd O/S - 29/Jan/12 with Andy

Did in 4 pitches (split 2nd pitch into 2). I led 1st and 3rd pitches, ice a bit lean at top of groove. Great route but nails hard.
Andrew Sloan - AltLd O/S - 29/Jan/12 with Martin Haworth

Fair amount of ice in the groove. Jeremy led pitch 2.

Excellent quality mixed, with a fair bit of ice on the crux pitch with a small steep ice pitch at the top. First successful mixed V.

The first and third pitches are alright, but the main corner gives a great 50m pitch. Well protected if you have some big gear, which I didn't and done under heavy powder.
adw07 - AltLd O/S - 24/Jan/09 with Mark Jarvie

Bit harder than last time due to ice smears and less snow on the ledges. Most of the turf well frozen. Still a great route with lots of interest on all three pitches....(seems to be the winter warm up route of choice!)
Chad123 - AltLd rpt - 29/Nov/08 with Lard

The alternative finish adds interest. The first pitch was a bit rubbish (perhaps the wall start was banked out).
decs - AltLd - 05/Feb/08 with Gaz

Classic climb, top two pitches have plenty of fun moves on solid turf in a cool groove....
