Hidden - 2nd O/S - 04/Apr/15

Led all pitches. Lovely plastic ice but very wet. Pitch 3 has a couple of stiff moves and quite serious in the thawing conditions. Finished directly up the icefall. VI,5 about right for the grade.
Andrew Sloan - Lead O/S - 04/Apr/15 with Victor menzenares

Memorable pitch 3 that saw nick get some air time from the crux.

The long wait is finally over! A brilliant route in good condition on the day, best taken with the direct finish up the icefall.
Captain Solo - AltLd - 24/Mar/15 with Gary

In very good condition, lots of everything except rock protection. Take lots of screws.

Helen lead P1&3, I lead P2. Ice was there, but thin except the second half of P3 (excellent pitch), and so it was serious. I used 2:1 weighted equalisation and load-limiting sling for the P2 belay.

Done in 3 piches, first 2 were amazing. Generally in good condition but at steep wall Al had to do trcky traverse left to find way through. Perhaps we were too far right.

One of my favourite routes on the Ben, nice open face climbing, never hard, but continuously interesting. Seemed easy for grade 6?
