Scotsken - Lead - 20/Jan/14 with Si Ball
Backed off from the top corner of P1, had been cleared of ice by a previpus party and what was there was melting rapidly.
All in all not my most successful Scottish winter trip but still enjoyed all of it.

Alot of the cracks had been filled with hard water ice so difficult to place gear where I wanted it. Climbed up the right wall at the short chimney/chockstone (p3) and then traversed back over once above. Quality climb, quality day!

Led (guidebook) P2 and P3, Ben led through to the top; unintentionally soloed P1. P2 Traverse was straight-forward, crux was a hard pull out of the chimney by the chockstone on P3. Descended Broad Gulley.
