80m, 2 pitches. pitch 1: (3) 50m Your choice of routes up the first 40/50 metres of the crag, any grade from tech 2/3 up. Belay on the sloping ledge, or from the ledge at the base of the groove.
pitch 2: (6) 30m Head up the groove past a tricky move to a ledge, then up the slab and excellent crack to the right for a technical finish! Can also finish out left, but its not as good.

Moving into the second groove a little nervy. Fantastic snatched route before the thaw!

Amazing, had this on my wishlist for a while! I led P1, Pete led P2. Great torques on the upper crack.

Ian led whole thing. Unlike that disputed photo here, was actually in very good winter conditions. Enjoyed. Found this quite easy though (good gear for lead too), a surprise/relief - probably my sort of thing, mind - I do like to get involved.

First pitch was trivial with lots of digging through powder. The second pitch felt very hard and pumping due to poor feet. An impressive lead.

Awesome climb! The hardest winter climb to date, the entire thing was banked out with 1ft of snow at its thinest and the crack was all filled with ice which meant there wasn't as much kit as i would of liked! Got to the point where you've got to decide to go either left or right and decided to go right, finally got a piece of gear i actually trusted and then torqued my way to glory! That final section is probably the best bit of winter climbing i've ever done! Felt tech 6 but overall I think in the conditions it was V 6, would like to do again when its not banked out!

My first winter IV, fun ...but glad I didn't have to lead.

Ryan finished with the left traverse halfway up the corner groove by mistake instead of exiting to the right. Still tech 6 by this route but likely inferior to the regular finish. Quality route all the same.

First real experience with winter climbing, and it has me hooked! A very memorable route, with excellent solid engaging climbing. Safe as it comes and delightfully technical with loads of footledges/back and footing stances to rest in. No reason not to get on it! Soloed up to it direct. Didn't go the easiest way - in fact my first pitch option was harder than the actual route!!

I did the first easy pitch, Barra the tech 6 pitch. Didn't think the turf was poperly frozen, snow useless but it's hooks all the way. Long (1+ hour) queue for 2nd pitch

Took left hand variation as it looked more of a direct and natural line. Challenging with delicate moves.
