Long trek for just one short pitch of ice which DK led. Fairly wild on top.

Brucemacrosson - AltLd - Mar/12 with Simon Opit

Pretty miserable conditions (thick clag, continuous drizzle) for my first Ben grade IV; glad Ewan led the first pitch and the "bulging ice wall"! Seemed like good ice and plenty of it to me (certainly not "thin"... yet).

Bailed off the top pitch in a waterfall....the end of the season could have been the week before
Timo Austino - 03/Apr/11 with Nats

Great conditions on the route with good ice all the way! More like IV,5 though. We seemed to take in variations left of the described line.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 05/Mar/11

Started right of the first icefall but went up the right of this. Into the left groove to the upper slope and choice of finish Right hand finish very thin and the normal finish over the ice bulge into the groove was also thin. Abseiled off right of the final ice bulge into No 2 Gully - below the gully a big avalanche came down off the top of Raeburns, over the cascade and down to parallel with the Garadh. A quulity mountain day!!!!! I led P1, Lucy P2 Phill P3.
Moonstone Hippy - AltLd dnf - 12/Feb/11 with Phill T, Lucy

The route length is 160-170 metres? The first section (4 metres ish) of the top pitch was thin, hollow, and I felt a grade harder. The final section was most enjoyable. Good route!
