First pitch is probably partially buried by ~5m of snow. Linked first 3.5 pitches into a 55m beast. Then did a short pitch to the ab station. Good route, obvious line. Callum_Johnson - Lead O/S - 22/Mar/14 with Marcus M

Deep powder swim to access route. Quite banked out to start, some good ice but hard to find gear. Great route though. Thanks Andy.

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!
masa-alpin - AltLd O/S - 02/Feb/13 with Adam Booth
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.
Adam Booth - AltLd O/S - 02/Feb/13 with Masa
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.
James S - AltLd O/S - 24/Jan/13 with edvin
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
oliverk - AltLd dnf - 22/Dec/12 with Tim E, Marty
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).
niallk - AltLd dnf - 02/Dec/12 with Willie
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.
