Good neve throught, after traverse, moved up into upper trident area, and finished up some mixed ground onto plateau to avoid cornice

Good route. Interesting traverse at the the end. Blowing a gale on the plateau so downclimbed no 5 instead.

Took a look at this after finding ourselves back low down in Coire na Ciste after doing Garadh Gully, then assisting with the heli rescue of a chap who'd taken a big fall on Comb Gully Buttress. Route is a bit of a tease... starts off all cosy and intimate and promising much, but then just as you're getting into it dumps you up on the side of number 5 gully in a most unsatisfying manner. Moved together apart from a small ice step and the descent into number 5.

First winter lead. Lots of snow and difficult to find protections. Unable to complete climb due to avalanche hazard of No.5 Gully, which discharged whist we were climbing. Avalanche debris ended up approximately 100m from CIC hut.

Good neve but no gear. Just having a wee climb before heading home from CIC.
jacobfinn - Solo dnf - 21/Jan/14

First climb after breaking hand. Everything felt fine. Really enjoyed it. Traversed into no. 5 and then finished up that onto the plateau.

Saw the exit a bit to corniced so exited to the last bit of Ledge Route, after having done the traverse.

Nice wee route. I imagine the traverse into Number 5 Gully would be "interesting" in unstable snow...

Hidden - 2nd O/S - 20/Feb/11

Avalanchy day, so just soloed the first 40-50m of the route. The worst part was the downclimb on the icy bit.
natalio - Solo dnf - 13/Feb/11

Nice route. The traverse down to No.5's top coire is tricky in unstable snow (not unusual). Short ice steps interspersed with medium and low gradient snow slopes make this an interesting route...especially if you have to chop through the cornice on No.5
