Ran it in 2 big pitches, I got first lead up to sentry box. Craig finished and we Abbed into broad gulley. Great route with interest most of the way, first V6, happy days

Lamb 23/Nov Lead O/S

2 pitches (P2). First pitch superb with some great moves up the slabs and into the chimney proper, continued interest. Second pitch was good out of the sentry box, with the hero hooks up the right hand crack superb fun with solid gear. Easy ground above would be better under neve. Turf was okay where required.

Brian Pollock 19/Nov Lead O/S

Wasn't expecting to enjoy this as much as I did. Sentry box traverse and crack were particularly good fun. Better than its 2 neighbours at the same grade.

Easy but bold, due to icyness.

Lots of useless powder about, made some of the moves fairly tricky. No ice on the slabs.

Quite bold and the turf wasn't particularly frozen. All the things to look for in a winter route.

Lead 2nd pitch, turf not fully frozen and lots of powder but really good route. First grade 5!

Led p1, unhelpful powder on slabs made for an interesting thrutch fest. Not much gear after the initial chimney.

Fun route. Two main pitches. First is quite bold. Second is well protected but probably harder.

We figured this would be feasible as a shortish hit for Sunday and fortunately we were proved right - started from the road at 8am and back at 3.45pm! Nice day as well - dry, clear and no wind. There was already a party on the route but they were moving quickly. Mark did the thrutchfest P1, which was bold and tricky on the crux wide crack. I led the rest of the difficulties in one long pitch (can be split into two). It looked deceptively easy! The crux was actually on the least steep section at the top, torquing with poor feet. Solid at the grade. Mark did the next pitch (sections of II/III) and I finished up the atmospheric grade I gully. We abbed off a block next to the top of the gully into Boomerang gully, walked down a bit and did a second an off a block over a steep section, which got us down to a gentle slope. 2.5hrs from the road to starting the route (1.20 to the bottom of the corrie - no time wasted), 3.45 for the route and 1.30 from topping out back to the road (walking poles essential for speed on the icy path). Felt great to get back fairly early for a change!

Top route. Took on the chimney in 2 main pitches, thereafter simul-climbed the gully with a bit of excavation and soloed to the top. Another excellent day.

with Jeremy M
Colin Dyer 12/Dec/15 AltLd

Brilliant route, 4 pitches of sustained interest and technical climbing. Abseil descent is mental!

About the only route safe enough & in condition with so much snow. The initial chimney was buried & we headed off left at the top to find something more entertaining.

Largely as a thin ice route than powder on rock which I suspect made it quite a bit easier.

Adam lead P1, P3, I lead P2. Abbed off after P3. Great ice in today's condition. Gear was hard to find. Good route!

Adam Booth 02/Feb/13 AltLd O/S

Bold. V 6 seems a bit misleading. The hard bits (teetering up super thin ice) were all well above the runners, luckily it was quite easy despite the scariness. Cool route. 50m ropes got us back to broad gully from the rap point.

with Masa
James S 24/Jan/13 AltLd O/S

walked in for the second day in a row to do 'central grooves' but was beaten to it both days! even after leaving the car park earlier today! did this as a consolation and turned out to be a nice route, little bit bold in places but quite straight forward climbing.

with edvin
furbrow 23/Jan/13 2nd

No ice at all, just an unhelpful quantity of snow. The slab after the initial chimney seemed impossible. In those conditions the route goes hard left up a steep little corner. It took us ages to figure that out.

Led P2. We abbed off from the top of P2 as we were all cold and wet after too much faffing

2 slow pitches and abbed as darkness was approaching. Led p2 after failing to get off the deck on p1 (thrutch-meister Willie showed how it was done).

There was thin ice build up on the slabs, mainly snow which made it hard for Will and Libby. In situ tat at the belays made it similar to a sports route, though the tat was very dodgy. I'd have removed them if they weren't frozen in place.

Good route - hard going in unconsolidated snow. Came off just above the crux placing gear when my footholds collapsed - held by axes in turf. The whole crag was thawing quite badly, soaked to the skin.
