Variation finish V 6, awesome first Scottish climb of the new year. Weather started clear but started snowing and got more windy pm.

Bomber frozen turf. I think we did the V 5 variation at the top described in the Cicerone guidebook. Good route and good gear today with a bit of digging. Hero hooks after every technical move. Perfect weather.

Well frozen turf and neve. Really good route, worth more than the paltry 1 star given by the guidebook.

Great route, not sure if the correct line was taken after the snow shelf, but all good fun and good conditions anyway.

Did the first two pitches but ran out of time to do the third pitch in daylight. Most of the route was buried in unconsolidated snow requiring a lot of excavation but it was just doable.

Lean conditions made this a bit harder - great mixed route.

Nice climb but very deep snow getting to it. Think we did variation finish as felt very tricky for the grade.
Rick Ashton - AltLd - 18/Dec/11 with Derek Stevenson

All going well till a big whip from Ali ended our day...

Not good. Went wrong way on 2nd pitch and fell 80ft ripping lots of gear. 2 broken ribs and some concusion

Guided by James. Found the slab on the second pitch to be very stiff for the grade. However with a bit of thinking and some delicate footwork it was overcome. Bit of a dig fest as there was lots of snow coming down. This caused problems later on meaning we ended up retreating from the belay on pitch three, there was just too much snow on Bomerang Arete.

Shuttsie - 2nd - Feb/10 with Andrea Sales

rightwards ramp on pitch one was very thin so tried a varation...... took a fall so went back up to the ramp felt very tenuous, the pitch with the chock stone in it also felt fucking stiff for the grade! might have been the conditions we did it in but felt more like IV/6 to me
