Standard, but enjoyable

The final slap was a bit tricky in lean condition

lead crux
Richard Kendrick - AltLd O/S - Jan/15 with Stanley

Good alternative to Invernookie...still has turf on it (which was well frozen).
Nemo9 - AltLd - 16/Dec/14 with Ian

Some useful snow and frozen turf, is this really IV,5 now? III,4 in old guide probably nearer the truth for good conditions. First route of the season - a long time coming
Captain Solo - AltLd - 15/Dec/14 with Gary

Some interesting moves on snowed up slabs. No ice, but enough hooks to get to the top.
GaryK - AltLd O/S - 15/Dec/14 with Ewan Lyons

Some good ice, some bad ice. Good snow/bad snow. Bit Slush Puppy in places but a fun route. Lots of melting going on.

Spent most of the time excavating the route from beneath deep powder snow. Crux corner and groove were very thin (no ice) and felt nails. Topped out in the dark. One to remember.

Good route with an awesome last pitch. It felt desperate in places especially the conner and exit grove.
andymoin - AltLd O/S - 12/Jan/08 with Sean

Gets IV,5 in new Gorms guide. Superb last pitch, a technical fight on hooks and torques. Andy lead the meaty bits.
