Dave Latimer - AltLd O/S - Feb/12

Grade 5! The route was in grade 4 condition and felt very soft. It currently has seen loads of traffic so there are ledges the whole way up. Bomber neve and the crux is not steep at all...at the moment!

Great fun!

Pete Graham - Lead - 21/Jan/12 with Ben Silvestre

Led p1 of 1st step and p2 of 2nd of the second, plus a mini pitch between. Thin with featured ice, but all there. Wild steep moves on the last pitch to get up a narrow, undercut section.

Luke Brooks - AltLd - 13/Jan/12 with Francis

Too thin for me on the top pitch slab, continued up No3 and then the continuation on the line of Thompson's route
MoWalker3 - AltLd - 06/Mar/11 with Quiet Ian

Had to abandon at the steepening near the top, the world was melting around us, and big chunks were breaking off.
rcammack - Solo dnf - 04/Mar/11 with Harry Holmes

spindrift on crux icicle & scary precarious cornice exit

Crux pitch was a bit lean for me, handed over to my partner who depatched it in fine style. Top out was fantastic.

Hidden - 2nd - 2010

climbed the crux second pitch upwards, varied ice, not as fat as you would have liked, sparse screws, but the cornice wasnt too bad so not complaining!
vincentvega - AltLd - 28/Mar/09 with danny robb

Backed off the top bit, climbed dowm having untied one strand and then re-tied it through some old tat on a peg, as the route wasn't complete. Ill be back though looks great!
joe larner - Lead dnf - 22/Feb/09

Steps not fully complete. first step ice not touching down fully, bit of a curtain and second step steep chockstone that is not really meant to be there i'm told. still V,5 but more interesting.

Somerset swede basher - AltLd O/S - 13/Apr/08 with George Taylor

Top section is STEEP! Great climb, last pitch is around 30m of vertical water ice, makes that PING sound when you smack it! Cornice is huge, escape on the right.
simon_D - AltLd O/S - 12/Apr/08 with Neil Silver

Jamie B - AltLd - Apr/08 with Lorenzo Antelove

First section complete, then crossed the line of No. 3 Buttress route, couldn't locate the direct finish so went up to the right and finished on mixed slabs, excellent.

Missed out first pitch as busy with people. Excellent long second pitch, where the crux was the tricky cornice at the top. Great little route though, well worth doing.

sgl - AltLd - 18/Feb/07 with helena

superb - each pitch gets better. Big cornice on top outflanked to right. Well worth the three stars (and why is this listed as being on Tower Ridge mod?!)
