illepo - Lead O/S - 30/Aug/15

I did 2, finished sentry box pitch, and top pitch. Great line, wasn't sure when i was on it, (bit damp, muddy/grassy in places) but retrospectively it got better.... Last pitch has two high steps by the way....Topped out to last of sunshine, down Black Spout to stretcher box. Next time would leave bags at the col and walk down ridge.

MightyStew - AltLd dnf - 12/Oct/14 with Ulrike Nabholz

Lead pitches 1 (50m), 3(15m) and 5(40m) Frosty morning, rock cold and wet for first few pitches. Despite good forecast, showers throughout day maintained wet rock. Trouble with rope drag lead to slow change overs and therefore pushed for time towards end. Reached summit just before dark. Badly mis-directed by blokes below us on pitch three, resulting in some precarious down climbing to the original route. Whaleback, as well as the classic summer crux (exposed step onto vertical wall, followed by hard move up to knife edge) provided hardest moves. Made much more tricky due to wet conditions. Traverse on last pitch was one of the highlights, very exposed requiring some good footwork.

Superb mountain route. Pitch 1 very wet and slippery but rock drying out in the wind higher on the route. Topped out just before dark.

RocKalina - AltLd O/S - 31/Aug/14 with climberandy

First pitch was pure mank, midge infested most of the entire route..absolute nightmare. Great postions and dry from 2nd pitch onwards. Climbed with James,lisa and Michael from Lomond Club.

Started in delightful sun, relaxed a bit too much, and found ourselves caught in a thunderstorm on the penultimate pitch. The mantle onto coping slab became more like a belly flop up a waterfall :). Euan and Johnathan who we shared the wall with kindly waited to check we were up safely and share the walk out. Great adventure of two halves. Quite an experience for Neus' first mountain trad climb.

Snow field has melted back to make approach snow free now. Beautiful weather and had the entire corrie to ourselves :) Did in 6 pitches. Thought the crux was below the sentry box just before the huge holds, not where the guidebook suggests. Good interesting climbing combined with wild exposure makes this a fantastic route!

8hrs total, car to car. 7 pitches. Some ice/snow still around the bottom of the route making for interesting approach. Climbed in trainers, first pitch is sightly mucky but the rest is clean. Very solid throughout, route finding quite straightforward, a fair bit of stuck/doomed pro leads the way. P5 probably the best which was the more vertical of the pitches on good edges and flakes. The best route of this grade that I have climbed. (HS 4b ****)

David_Gledson - AltLd O/S - 17/May/14 with Gary

I've done this 3 times before, twice as rock route and once in winter. This 4th time was almost as hard as the winter route due to difficulties getting onto the route (very deep Bergschrund) and very grubby lower pitches. We had to do the winter finish due to large snow patch on the summer line! Even this required an axe (we had axe and crampons to get to the route)

An awesome day with Stuart. Had the corrie to ourself the whole day as far as I could tell. Swung leads, myself on pitch 1,3 & most of 5th. Stu took 2,4 and joined the last part of 5 to 6. Definitely worth four stars but felt undergraded for me there were three short sections of hs with severe in between. Must be epic in winter!
Cameron94 - AltLd - 30/Aug/13

Lead pitches 2, 4, end of 5 and 6. Did 5 and 6 in one pitch as weather was getting wet - was just doable with a 50m rope stretched to get to good belay. Route is clean, belays are good and route is easy to find (following the SMC book) Stiff for a severe.

The rock was wet, muddy and vegetated when we got there, not nice to climb, then it started raining heavily on the 3rd and probably hardest crux pitch, before the sentry box it was wet and dangerous and not fun so we bailed out.  4 abseils later and various bits of gear left behind we got down safe.  Definitely one to do, but when its dry and the route has had plenty of traffic. Some crag swag for the next people up it.

Great route with amazing exposure. A shame the difficult sections on the upper half of the route are so avoidable by traversing out right. Plenty of evidence that people had done that. Shame as they would have missed the best bits. Keep to the crest as much as possible. Just a couple of tricky moves with one tricky step up with a hand jamming hold. Lost count of the number of stuck cams on teh route!

Did alternative 3rd pitch (further right of the crest), felt like 5a. Someone had obviosly abbed off this pitch as they left behind a Wild Country Flexi-friend, thanks.

After bivvying out on Meikle Pap! What a superb route.
nick everett - AltLd - Aug/95 with Jason Brookes

Brilliant!. Even in June we had do a snow/ice pitch to get to the start. Andy led that cutting steps needed for us in our trainers. Used pointy stones as ice axes... Man the tool maker survived yet again! The climb proper was superb. I remember on the top we swilled the three beers I had secretly lugged in my sack up the hill and the route in unusually sweltering Scottich mountain weather. Snowbuntings flitted around us on the top.
