First grade VI. Did chimney in 3 pitches. led 1st pitch and final narrow slot....demanding but great route. Had to take sack off for my pitches.Descended ledge route.

Ken Applegate 10/Dec/11 AltLd

Continuation of direct start, to make 4 excellent pitches of climbing. I led the first chimney, Scott led the second. Quite a bit of unconsolidated snow beneath an icey crust made it hard going at times.

Crucial ice block collapsed in the final chimney, a fight ensued to pull out of the last chimney over the right hand side face (last bloody move of the route!), 2 falls later and we decided to ab back off. Bastard.

We walked up with a route in mind and realised that carn dearg was as white as we had ever seen it. So decided to try route 2 direct. Pitch 1 was not in so went for route 1 direct, wanting to traverse back right after. Then, the damned unforecasted thaw clamped on, and damped us! Tried to do the whole of route 1 but had to give up on the ledge and pack it in. The start is 3 piches and was 40+27/8+25 m of climbing (the guide says 70 but we took a more logical line right). It felt like a short route of its own.
