Fantastic route in great condition with good weather. First day of our trip to Scotland, did it with guide Ken Applegate (who was excellent). A really good day.

timday 02/Mar/14 2nd O/S

Surprisingly good, although abundant soft/fresh snow made things interesting in places and had erased any traces of Saturday ascents (we were first on route). Gear hard to find; very happy to find a buried in-situ sling before last obstacle.

Frozen turf and powder snow, but not much neve or ice. Generally, well protected throughout.

Good frozen turf and snowed up rock but no ice or neve made this feel a little stiff in places for the grade. Fantastic route though. beware rope drag after the tower - lots of zig zags.

Brilliant route in good condition. Some unhelpful soft snow about but it seems to be a route that would come into condition with a good freeze and bit of snow. First pitch was the highlight with some good mixed climbing and turf placements. Felt marginally harder than your average Cairngorms IV. Perhaps that was the filthy weather! Easy descent down Broad Gully

Dave Latimer 20/Dec/12 2nd
Ragingpossum 19/Dec/12 AltLd O/S

I lead P1, Harry P2 and Clay P3. Snow and turf were frozen throughout the route and there was enough Ice on the first pitch to aid progression whilst not hampering rock protection. So effectively in perfect condition. Fantastic route, 4 stars.

Captain Solo 27/Jan/12 Solo

Good frozen turf, surprising how much given its popularity, some neve on the bigger ledges topped with powder. An excellent varied route.

Little late on the route, first pitch was long and conditions not ideal. Lots of powder and spindrift. Second pitch was tricky with powder on the slabs. Gear was very hard to find! Topped out as it was getting dark.

olekemi 29/Dec/11 AltLd O/S

Wet in the valley but snowy up there with plenty spindrift on the route. Much snow, little ice, variable turf. Missed the right exit of the first chimney so continued up to steeper and more and more difficult ground before finally escaping to the more mellow turf. Altogether, an awesome route and a great day climbing.

Lead first pitch, was a total nightmare, covered in powder, spindrift avalanches, wind blowing snow/spindrift UP the route, turf not frozen, ice rotten; all resulting in pretty blind/dicey climbing. Bloody scared I was. Bailed after first pitch as weather was stinking and getting worse.

Alex led the hard first chimney, I carried on up a short second chimney to the ridge, behind the tower and up the narrow gully behind it for a comfortable a cheval belay stance. Karin led an airy pitch, then Alex led to the top. A really fantastic route.

Alexandre Buisse 04/Apr/10 AltLd O/S

Led the first and last pitch. The first one had unfrozen turf and no ice in the cracks, felt sustained and a bit desperate toward the top (though it might have been possible to traverse out of the chimney early in the pitch). The rest was varied, exposed and fun. Overall, a great route!
