First grade IV. Good ice on the steeper pitches but the rest a bit cruddy. Topping out in glorious sunshine made up for it though!

Traversed onto here at start of ice from wendigo. Great climb tho ice a bit dodgy in places due to turbo warm conditions. Very solid IV in conditions IMO.

Piers Harley - AltLd - 13/Feb/12 with Laurence King

Great introduction to winter climbing proper on Ben Nevis. Good ice and exciting climbing. Ran out third pitch from second belay to top - not a place to fall! Overall, not exactly alt lead, as mostly on second.

Soloed up to the first real steep bit. Great conditions for everything bar protection which made for a run out adventure. Did plan to do Central Gully as my first grade III but due to some "incorrect" route finding we did this instead as my first Grade IV lead. Cracking weather.

wicked tunnel cornice finish!
Neil Mackenzie - AltLd O/S - 25/Mar/07 with Andy

Great route better than joining the queue for green. Nice steep ice with one vertical fall and tunnel thro the cornice to exit, well protected with gear appearing just were u need it. Awesome, deserves more stars than its give in the ukc log.

RobScotland - Lead O/S - 24/Mar/07 with Magnus

Awsome line, with some sweet ice. A lot of stuff coming down as the group ahead cut a tunnel through the cornice, but nice to have a pre cut tunnel :)
