Very powdery, Turf not frozen but damn was it nice to be out of Glasgow and forget about impending exams

Robertgiddy 30/Nov AltLd

Backed off 5m up Maclay's Crack because the turf was unfrozen, so did this instead. Found a through route under a chockstone to pass the first crux. There is a lot of fresh snow in the corrie at the moment which is probably why the turf was still unfrozen.

Basically short-roped (seconded) whole route and seconded the crux.

Alpine conditions sunshine, no wind climbed after Chockstone. Good frozen turf where you need it.

Not in condition! Still clambered up but protected a couple of thin sections. Otherwise soloed.

Took my two brother in laws up this for they're first winter climb, lovely Neve, but the cruxes not banked out yet so slight tricky mixed climbing on these! Amazing weather, brilliant day!

First winter route of the year bagged. Was a very good climb. Probably still a bit mild for it though. No frozen turf or snow! Was in good early season mixed condition with lots of gear available. But if you were only leading II you would have got shock I think, i felt like III in current condition. Calum completed first pitch and opted for the option through the hole and into the small cave. I enjoyed the tricky middle moves and took the right hand fork close to the top as it looked more of an interesting few moves to finish. All in a nice situation and good enough route!!

First day of week in Scotland. On way up to Fort William stopped off to fit a route in. Turf not yet frozen and hence first step was more awkward than anticipated! Otherwise a very pleasant climb.

A bit bare; powdery snow with the boulders bare. II seems a bit harsh in those conditions.

This looked ok from the bottom but there turned out to be a lot of loose powder, which was very unpleasant! With a bit more, consolidated, snow this would be very good. Turf was frozen, though. Definitely harder than II in current conditions and the guidebook was not lying about awkward moves at the start and middle!

By the through route start. Tricky little step half way.

Found this one much harder than Chockstone Gully. It took me embarrassingly long though until I realized I have to go through the hole in the back.

Not ideal conditions. Nice day but snow was thin and turf not completely frozen. Tough start over first boulder. Novice 'threaded the needle' to get over the first boulder. I led the second boulder which was quite hard as well. The rest just powdery snow. Hard given the conditions (grade 2 probably). Would be good (but easy) if lots of consolidated snow. Had originally started up Maclays crack but bailed due to no frozen turf.

Very hard as not enough snow/ice at the start.

masa-alpin 06/Feb/09 Lead O/S

First grade II for Laurence. Unfortunately the initial wall was thin, and I had to use 2 axes (one of them being just a walking axe, which I regretted) and torquing... Grade III/IV in this condition. Laurence had a massive struggle there in seconding.

Very thin at the moment, the turf was not frozen and not enough snow, still got up it with a few curses.

Think this was the climb we did (no guidebook - just found our way up). Big boulder at the bottom - crawled through wee hole, then a good snowy gully broken by one short rocky pitch. Steep snow at the top. Good bucket-seating and awesome moving together through blizzard conditions to the North and Main summits, on which we were rewarded with sunshine and the only views of the day.
