The forecasted sunshine and blue skies didn't happen, but winter conditions were kind enough at 0 to -2C. Some great snow and ice sections, some areas of down climbing were a bit thin on ice and made us concentrate a little harder. Used one axe with proper leash which came into its own. Fun..thrilling...scarey....and tiring. Wonder what it's like in summer?

I've waited for years to find this in proper winter condition, and it was definitely worth the wait. No ice, a little frozen turf, and loads of powder made for slow going. Temperatures ranged from -6 to -8 but luckily we missed the strong winds that hit other nearby summits that day.
Soloed most of it but got the ropes out for the pinnacle section.
Just managed to finish the hard bits before the sun set, the torches didn't come out until the final Munro. Descended from near the col before the Pap. A long day, almost 12 hours to the Youth Hostel where we'd left our 2nd car.

Park up in Glencoe,long walk up to the start of the route, however once started one summit after the other follows, very long day,early start in winter required,bad vis can make certain sections tricky to negotiate,we short roped the middle section,no escape route either until the pap,once started you must finish or be prepared to stay out.Good day,great views of Glencoe, Loch Leven.Would love to repeat.

First winter route (and nearly the last). Classic case of 'got the gear no idea'. Benighted halfway along ridge and stupidly decided to ascend directly off the ridge via a steep gully. Descent took all night (with 2 scary abseils), got back to car for 11am the following day!! Lessons were learn't!

A good lesson in winter mountaineering. Took us 12 hours, mainly due to there being two complete novices in the party, and only having one rope between 5 of us. Route was generally in good condition, though snow a bit powdery and loose in places. The two inexperienced members of the party needed roping up on several sections, which slowed progress considerably - got very, very cold waiting around (numb hands). Otherwise, we only needed to pitch the pinnacles, and a nasty verglassed slab shortly afterwards. Did the whole of the descent in the dark, in a blizzard - horrendous! I thought I was going to die.... I'll do it again someday - but will wait for a perfect winter day, and do as an experienced party of 2 or 3.
