Really enjoyable solo. A couple of short bits that I thought a bit stiff for the grade.
JamesRoddie - Solo O/S - 11/Jan/14
Dry and sunny, windy in exposed spots - Busy in the corrie: I followed one other solo up Central Buttress and had two teams behind me. Teams on Shadow Buttress, Polyphemus, Black Spout and West Buttress.

Very little snow left, turf still nicely frozen. Felt more like a summer scramble than a winter route.

A nice long buttress with some short lived technical sections and great situations. Great fun!

Crisp clear day - Partially frozen turf lower on route - sound higher up. Climbed moving together, pitched technical sections. Last snow slopes climbed by torchlight.
11 hours round trip from Spittle car park.

Tough for a II. Fairly sustained. Might have had something to do with the turf not being frozen in places. Move around the left side of the second gendarme was the crux i'd say.

Felt nippy for a II.
Lots and lots of wading and unburrying gear and digging through the snow for turf. A worrying fracture line in the snow in the top basin made it a rather scary top out.

Lead all. Moved together to start then pitched it. Lots of powder so hard to see easiest route, perfectly still. Glorious sun except we weren't in it! Quite a bit of digging for belays and awkward move round at one point and crumbly plod to the top, not great topping out with one axe!

A rather stressful start to the season, with a sketchy mix of ice over powder that didn't inspire confidence.
jonny taylor - AltLd O/S - 31/Jan/09 with Jamie
Rather long day out, 14 hours on the hill in total. Had fun finding the way back down in the dark. Nasty rain crust on powder made the climbing 'interesting'
