Timothy Miller - AltLd O/S - 23/Jan/15 with Gra ham

Slipped off on the verglassy hand traverse, found the drier holds in the end. Brilliant climb. Led top two pitches as one.

Mega, more than one screw could have tamed the run out on the top pitch!

Nick Clement - AltLd - 17/Jan/15 with Paul Figg

Lead 1st pitch, Nick ran 2nd, 3rd pitch together. Don't forget the ice screws. 2 great contrasting pitches.

Tons of snow,lots of spindrift, hard going and a big avalanche over to right, more scary than the climb!
phil64 - AltLd O/S - 22/Jan/13 with chris thorn

Great route, top pitch could have done with more ice, rather than verglas smears!

Stupidly tried used my tools on the hand traverse! Fell off whilst seconding. The rest was good and really enjoyable.

Simon Yearsley - AltLd - 20/Nov/09 with Ian Parnell, Malcolm Bass

Awesome route. Very contrasting pitches. Outrageous moves on the hand traverse not that hard at all. p2 and p3 ran together. Mostly thinnish but good ice, reasonable pro until the last 8m of the steep bit. Required just to get on with it.
