Great route, worth all 3 stars. Top is lean just now, felt extremely serious with very little gear past the first 15ft. Small cornice to tunnel through at the top also.

Led pitch 1. Awesome route. Soft for the grade.

Led pitch 2 and the ice pitch 3, Dougie did a great job on pitch one, specially the dyno at the end of the hand traverse! The ice pitch was fun, ice on the thin side but loads of gear and placements, about Wi3+/4 so fairly straight forward. I placed load of rock gear on the first 3rd of the pitch, and then two stubbies and a bulldog and a crap peg for the rest. If I had 4 stubbies I would have place them all, I'm still learning this Scottish stuff, this was only my 6th route up here in Scotland.

Excellent route. Tough conditions. Lots of powder and not all the turf was frozen despite the cold weather. Enough of it was where you needed it but definitely less than ideal and could do with a freeze thaw. Also, be aware there isn't alot of ice on the top pitch, just enough to get by but the top section is very serious at the moment with no gear.

J_Trottet 13/Jan 2nd O/S

Fun crux on first pitch. Didn't fancy the look of the thin ice on top pitch so let Brian go for it.

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!

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!

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

French Erick 12/Feb/09 AltLd O/S

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.
