After work climb and ski descent via the same route. Reached the top as the sun was setting. Great line.
unremarkable, except for the tiring calves. nice way to go to the top though
Much unconsolidated snow on top of hard base but went well.
Huge queue on Twisting Gully so did this as our second route of the day
Fun climb, relatively easy even for a nervous novice like me
1st winter lead , took direct variant ice route and through broken ground to summit from main route rather than follow route as it doubles back to right

Top half after topping out of Spectre
WET! lower part not complete anymore, top of the gully finishes on bare rock.
Started up this then moved onto the arÍte which looked more fun. Good conditions after initial powdery approach.
Lovely day - fantastic view across to Aonach Eagach.
|Ross Young||29/Dec/14||AltLd O/S|
Powdery at the bottom, icey in the middle and more loose stuff at the top, stunning views across Glencoe throughout
Powdery. Late start, even later finish

Seconded as a Mock Student with PyB on an MIC assessment.
with Plas y Brenin for the MIC assessment. stunning day with incredible weather. fantastic day out. first winter climb :)
Pitch in middle was incomplete so had to cut up right which was interesting
MS1, great neve
Stonking neve the whole way up
Perfect neve. Took rack and rope but didn't need it. Grade 1 apart from the 2m rock/ice section
|Martin McKenna - UKC||09/Mar/13||Lead rpt||
80mph winds but made it. decent was interesting in those conditions!
We *think* this is the route we climbed, anyway...

|kiwi boy||28/Feb/13||AltLd O/S||
Great little outing. Nice small ice pitch for which Alistair humoured me by soloing first then dropping a rope down. Great day out for practicing skills
|Nick F Smith||10/Feb/13||AltLd O/S|
|Martin McKenna - UKC||03/Feb/13||AltLd O/S|
Combo of pitching and simul climbing as the weather started to turn.
|John McKenna||01/Feb/13||2nd O/S|
|Chris Lowe||12/Jan/13||2nd O/S||
Incomplete 2nd pitch - Likely above published grade as a result...
|George Killaspy||17/Dec/12||AltLd O/S||
Nice plod up the start without ropes, then a quick belay set up before a brief, 2m, 'ice' pitch/desperate scramble leading to another quick ramble to the top. Completed on a cloudy, miserable, 2-metre-visibility, spin-drift covered dissapointment of a day, and worth every moment :)
Scott Baxter, Rob Harrison
Bomber neve in the first half, second half chossy an loose rock/turf.
Mixed corner pitch in very poor and loose nick, upper snow slopes in good nick firm and enjoyable
Bottom mixed section was well thawed and rather precarious and loose. Snow slope above was in reasonable nick considering warm temps was good fun.
A little trouble route finding in the thin condition and clag on the upper half
|Clay C||22/Jan/12||Solo O/S|
will, clay, George
First winter route. Lovely neve all tye way up. The pitch where it turns right was very thin turf was well frozen but no ice to talk of.

7 years to the day since my first ascent.
|epic ed||22/Feb/11||Lead O/S||
Lots of wet snow. Buried belays.
Good fun today! First proper winter multi-pitch, felt good to get my ice axes driven into some good ice :)
|Harry Holmes||22/Jan/11||Solo rpt|
Up the starting gully, then wide left hand continuation onto the shoulder then up.
Out for a walk - was such a good day we couldnt resist the gully, Terry's first winter outing well done to him.
The steep step at the bend of the gully was very lean indeed, added interest.
No ice fall, so no need to rope up. Have to go back and do it when in proper condition.
Snow too damp due to thaw conditions, maybe a bit late in the season now.
lead first pitch and solo remaining pitches

|J Brown||10/Mar/10||Lead O/S||
Straightforward, but an enjoyable route. Pleasant top-out in to the sunshine.
first climb on stob coire nan lochan, great approach from the A82, in condition this is a great climb,the view from the summit is spectacular.short ice pitch near the top.
Kenneth David Hook
Did some sort of right-hand variation, I think. Great day out, not much protection but belays all solid.
first winter climb but definitely not my last. Oh and rob had a great little accident half way up!
|Harry Holmes||30/Jan/10||Lead O/S|
I led the tricky step, Tom and I moved together on the rest, Tom in the lead till the top.
Lots of snow, felt like swimming up at times. Beautiful scenery when the cloud lifted though.
|Liam Ingram||02/Jan/10||AltLd O/S|
Pete lead, Ed and I both climbed at the same time. Moved together after the first 2 pitches to save time. A really enjoyable route, and a good introduction to Scottish winter climbing!
Pete Swan, Ed Moss
|Lawrie Brand||17/Dec/09||AltLd O/S||
Rope out for the wee step then grade 1 romp to the top..
|Only a hill||12/Dec/09||AltLd||
Good conditions. Mixed step was more entertaining this time and made a good pitch.
|Only a hill||30/Mar/09||Solo O/S||
Very straightforward, I/II in the conditions.

|Kyle Rance||23/Feb/09||Solo O/S|
easy at the grade
Wet, wet, wet. Swam all the way up it.
Climbing on a short rope, alpine style. Didn't belay or use any gear.
Paul Davies, Kyle Rance, Tom Evans
Not usually into soloing in winter but conditions were so beautiful and there was no cornice.
jamie + kev
rope of 3 moved together with a few runners. did left branch out onto face of the stob, due to low mist. v.fine conditions. descended broad gully.
andy w & graeme w
Wee steep bit collasped during a graupel waterfall.
Alternative finish, last two pitches grade III took left hand exit onto steep ground up main headwall to summit
Excellent route, good conditions under foot. Fresh but not too deep layer of snow made going a little hard at times but no major problems.
Johnny Elliot, Whitey
|The Mountain Goat||04/Jan/08||Solo O/S||

Crux a bit mixed - probably III

First Scottish winter route. Lots of snow may have hidden the difficulties, because we didn't find any.
