bob johnson - 12/Mar/13 with Mike Pescod, Al Borrett

Great route. Crux was steep water-ice but forgivingly hooked (still a bit pmpy nonetheless). Led p1, 3 (as full-length pitch including crux), 5 etc. Snow plod at top goes on longer than anticipated.

Crux ice pitch was steep and very pumpy! It was fat ice so went right up the middle of it. Went all the way to top out.

luckyjim - AltLd - 10/Feb/13 with C Hossack, D Helm

Led pitches 1 and 3, giving Euan the crux. Great climb, but crux felt scary, although never that difficult. Windy day!
JasonK - AltLd - 10/Feb/13 with Euan Boyd

Nice route with fairly intimidating crux. Was disappointed that I took the chicken line but that seems to be standard.

Great route, good lead by Andy on the crux, very steep ice. Carried on to the summit.
Martin Haworth - AltLd O/S - 22/Feb/11 with Andy

I led crux pitch; very steep for grade V and ice only about 6 inches thick in places so worth taking shorter screws. Finished up one of exit gullies in very unconsolidated snow....hard work.

Captain Solo - AltLd - 15/Mar/08 with Ewan

jimdanson - Lead dnf - 11/Mar/06 with danm
