Hidden - 2nd - 27/Feb/11

Nice 1st Ice pitch, although it is the only thing really hanging in after the recent thaw, top is a bit of a sketch jus now! Should form up quickly with another dump + freeze, impressive scenery...
simon_D - AltLd O/S - 26/Feb/11 with Alex

Nice enough route, if a bit short on the fun bits. Right hand branch chimney is tricky, but good. Dave was lucky enough to lead that bit...

Stephen18 - AltLd O/S - 21/Mar/10

Icefalls, waterfalls, rockfalls, spindrift, ice boulders, little gear, turf. Must be Scottish Winter climbing.
Lamb - AltLd O/S - 20/Mar/10 with Stephen

Really nice first ice pitch, then straight forward till the last pitch, which was a horror show of soft snow and little gear, hard and very scary!
sebrider - AltLd - 14/Feb/10 with Chris wilson

Good ice on the first pitch, then easy gully climbing to the last pitch. With heavy layers of rime and unconsolidated snow the steep chimney pitch and top out was hard and exciting.

Made the climb. Very easy climb, although a lot of loose rocks and small particles that become slidy when wet.
