Cadairmanuk - 2nd O/S - 18/Feb/13 with John Weale
Lean conditions. Soloed first pitch including short ice step over chockstone. Rich lead next (crux) pitch ~6-8m near-vertical ice step. DH did next pitch with another ice step but not as steep. DP lead final pitch with short ice section through narrows and steep cornice exit. Horrendous spin drift going over top. Definitely grade IV today.

Surprisingly good condition. Great neve and a short steep thin ice crux at top of 1st pitch. Prob high end IV today. Well worth the walk in when everything else was stripped

Pretty much swam the last 5 metres, 15m above a shitty stubby screw in shitty ice, above a ranshackle belay of 2 small half hammered in wires, a half hammered in kingpin, and a half inch hammered in bulldog :) My partner couldn't get one of the wires and the bulldog out so musta been ok!

waiting a long time to do this. Wonderful remote atmosphere away from Sneachda. Climbing is straightforward but the situation is awesome. Great mountaineering day. Soloed to ice pitch with good rock belay. Ran out 60m to another rock belay and 30 m out to r of cornice.

Led main pitch. Soloed up to the base of the main ice fall, after trying Deep Cut and going off route. Massive powder drop on us from above the Chancer, and loads of spindrift!

Very atmospheric, big iceicls covering the left walk, I led the first pitch and the two ice falls, some good ice covered with a layer of snow. Want to come back in lean condition when its less banked out.
