Jim led P1, Adam inadvertently linked P2 & P3. Took LH branch at crux by mistake - felt quite hard for III! Superb ice
adam clarke - AltLd O/S - 10/Mar/13 with James Hulme

malteserEd - 2nd - 09/Mar/13

Think I did a bit of a direct line through the overhang rather than trending right which was quite exciting. Finished up the left side of gulley-great route though difficulties short lived. Good short ice pitch at the start-my first ice screw placement.

Led crux second pitch. Felt quite bold. Ice good for axes but not great for screws.
Hoyes - AltLd rpt - 21/Feb/13 with Rachel B

Repeat. Harder than last time! Decent belay for crux pitch too high for where the ice has formed this time. Ice pretty stepped out but really good. First two pitches really good, P1 - me, P2 - J.

Been after this for a while. Loved it. Snow ice a bit cruddy and fragile but good enough to get by. Crux step bit awkward. Led all of it except the snow plod to underneath the cornice.

J's turn to take on the crux pitches this time around. I led P2 & P4. P1 ice wasn't thick enough to take screws, but there was plenty there to climb it. P2 was notable by my inability to find any real gear until the belay.

Rhodri led it all. Ice a bit thin in places. Great day out though
Cardi - 2nd O/S - 27/Jan/11 with Rhodri, Mike Wild

Only lead P3. Not in very good condition at all, thin cruddy ice, lots of bare rock. Ice step at beginning of second pitch not fully formed. Backed off Grade IV Direct variation on 2nd pitch. Must come back and do in better conditions

Fantastic climb. Did it in 3 pitches. Tended right up an ice ramp in the second pitch. End of last pitch finished in soft snow. Then we went and did a bum slide down broad gully.
