Lead second picth. Finished up final pitch of the Message.

Went right under the last pitch of The Message but found the traverse bold and scary on little ledges with powder.
finished up right near/on pot of gold; IV,4 seems about right for this way
Good route, 1st pitch pretty straight forward, 2nd pitch has a very technical move off the belay that's particularly hard in lean conditions. 3rd pitch is great fun and looks harder than it is (bomber hooks all the way up)- definitely not a soft IV,5 though.

Reasonable conditions for this time of year, still plenty unconsolidated snow on rock making some moves more delicate than normal, gear was ok although a fair bit of scraping around needed as it looked as though no one had been up it this season so far. Visibility terrible!!
Iain Munro, Steve Walls
Not the best of routes but a good top pitch.

Good route to salvage the day after falling through the ice into the lochan!
Great route... were going to do The Message, but Steve didn't like the entry moves from the ramp. Tim led first, then Steve, and I unexpectedly got the plum: delicate traverse and then a romp up a steep corner and awkward step-round on excellent hooks and torques.
Tim Higgins, Steve Crawford
Led 1st pitch. Good route, and good early season nick.

Did different/new variation of pitch 2 since it looked to easy (plan A was message but corner to bare). Started as hybrid but came back to the right via a shallow groove come crack to finish 4 m of message p2 belay stance. More serious but not difficult V,5?
Variant to second pitch, poss. V,5/6?

The 3rd (last) pitch is similar to, though harder than, The Seam. Gear is strenuous to place. Also the first move on the second pitch, straight off the belay, is very technical.
