Fabulous route but a serious 'sandbag' at IV,4......solid V,5 in my opinion. Did as 4 pitches, led 2nd and 4th Bitingly cold wind all day.
Andrew Sloan - AltLd O/S - 11/Feb/13 with Steve Grove

nikkimac - AltLd - Dec/12 with Tom Jenkins

Climbed in 2 pitches from a stance about 10m up from the start of the narrow gully, 1st pitch 45m, some parts very steep for IV, several sections of overhanging ice, some of which could be bridged, some of which had to be climbed direct! 2nd pitch 60m, very little gear except the odd warthog and bullldog!

Quite thin which made it hard but doable
DundeeDave - 2nd - 04/Dec/10 with Ewan Gourlay

Done in three pitches, 50m, ~40m, ~30m. First was the toughest, with a tricky chimney then a long icefall, which Paul led. Quite hard to find a belay at the top of the second pitch, keep an eye out for the old peg! Thought this was a great route.
Brendan - AltLd O/S - 12/Mar/10 with Paul

jay.mac - AltLd O/S - 21/Feb/10 with Bjorn Verduijn

1st and 2nd pitches very hard in the current conditions. Great climb.
Adi Hooper - AltLd - 19/Feb/10 with Roger Ward

blinking flip that was hard! Seemed thin but not sure what it's normally like. Crux was the initial chimney pitch. The middle icefall was there but with a gap near the top - the start was hard, off-balance moves to gain a narrow ice ramp. Sting in the tail was a final steep pitch on a mixture of ice and cruddy snow. Don't have enough experience to be confident about grade but compared with the other 4s we did this weekend it was probably 5 in these conditions. A bit of a step to far for me in terms of difficulty, it was all a bit too worrying! But 48 hours on I'm beginning to have enjoyed it...
Simon Caldwell - 13/Feb/10 with Carmen
