First icefall pitch then got sick of queuing to climb and descended!

Very disappointed. Too much easy ground on this route for it to deserve a grade V. The ice pitches may be steep, but it doesn't come close to being similar to Point 5 or Silver Tear on Beinn Bhan.

An easier route option on the day, first pitch good ice, final corner pitch good snow ice first time placements but a bit cruddy for screws.

Tim did the two main ice pitches. Both felt really hard. After second crux, the route seemed to go on and on in the dark

Top pitch stripped by recent thaw, couldn't find guide book suggested exit into south castle gully so ab'd back down route.

the most adventuros and scary solo climb , the traverse and the top were covered of powdery snow just good for avalanches ...... it is an amazing chili climb

Two excellent pitches on steep ice!!

Big Lee 11/Feb/11 AltLd O/S

A couple of quality ice pitches. The top pitch was as steep as anything I've climbed on the Ben.

Fantastic lower ice pitch. Top pitch was not fully formed so finished up South Castle Gully.

Nice to see some people actually have led the top pitch before claiming it. A lot of people have OS's despite abseilling off before the crux pitch.

One of the scariest leads ever as top corner was very thinly iced on the left wall so took pretty much no gear for the whole pitch! Lower icefalls were excellent fun....

Led easy pitches 1 & 3. Crux pitch extremely serious

with Jim Danson
akhughes ?/Feb/06 AltLd O/S

No ice in corner on final pitch, just a vertical inch thick smear for 15m. No gear but amazing thin climbing. Just like the 3rd pitch of Gemini but with no gear.

I took the easy pitch's very steep & rotten ice
