A nice introduction into the Mess of Pottage style climbing. Technical, and a little thin for gear at the grade for the first pitch. Enjoyable throughout, however escape is an option into the gully on the left from several places after the pitch one.

not a route of great interest. we did this as an alternative to queing for the 'honey pot' with the 1st pitch of the honey pot which was well protected and enjoyable with a tricky start

The full scottish winter experience! Gusts of 75mph, poor vis and spindrift everywhere.

Fantastic climb

Chrismith 06/Feb AltLd O/S

First 10m was balls, ledge shuffling with a rucksack on and poor hooks/gear(or I just never found them!). After this it was alot nicer, some decent ice and neve. Turf frozen solid. Pretty blowy today with snow and spindrift all over the place.

Good climbing really nice mixed bits during the route weather was ok if a little exposed on first 2 pitches.

Lots of fresh snow everywhere, Grade IV 5 ? more like the original III.4

Led P1 & P3. Iced up cracks meant very little gear on P1. Loads on fresh snow on P2 and P3 made progress hard going.

In 2 pitches. Led 2nd, which has one short IV section at the top, otherwise a I. First pitch was sketchy to start, then improves.

Led P1 & P3. P1 is quite technical for the grade but good and I managed to find some good gear a bomber hex for the lower thin section. The P2 corner is fun and the steep start to P3 on bomber hooks was too. Enjoyable even though it was verglassed.

Nath93 29/Mar/15 AltLd O/S

Lead pitch one which is quite balancy and doesn't have a lot of gear until the corner. Second pitch had a difficult finish, we may have gone wrong though!

JackM92 29/Mar/15 AltLd O/S

Interesting moves through some steep blobs of frozen turf, but overall not a very good line.

A good consolation route which although lean was quite icy up the corner. Some tenuous moves on the first section. Steeper routes were black.

remarkably good conditions today. lead up to the top of the big corner (pitches 1 and 2 as 1 pitch). really delicate and bold 1st pitch which was a surprise given the grade suggests well protected. pitch 2 was banked out with solid neve so really easy. hard to give a grade, maybe V 4 first pitch, II second and III 5 3rd?

A big thaw was on, the climb was melting around us, had to detour round to the left of P1 and traverse back onto the line at the start of P2, nice move through a corner made harder with no ice , P3 just a walk off
