Uisdean hawthorn - AltLd - 28/Feb/14 with murdo

amazing climbing with a very committing feel, i led both crux pitches, the second of which was very sustained. we also had route finding issues on the final pitches and traversed left, I pulled on gear seconding this last pitch in the dark as i couldn't really feel my hands or feet!. we then had a total epic getting back to the car in 80mph winds and whiteout conditions. it felt like a very out there day!

Huge day. Not sure where the route goes after the second crux - straight up seemed utterly desparate so after a couple of wasted hours trying various options, we took a snow bay & open-book corner about 10-15m left of the stance. Awesome route though!
