Zoomer 29/Mar/13 Lead O/S

Brilliant climbing, steep and then technical. Really pleased that I've ticked it after waiting a few years for it, and me, to come into condition.

Awesome climb probably harder than some Scottish v ( easy ones like the pumpkin)..... Blue skies and fat ice, i used all my screws on the main pitch including the 21 cm ones! Beware of falling ice from above!!! I lead all the harder pitches, Rob finished the leading off after the crux pitch

with Rob
Misha 26/Jan/13 AltLd O/S

Seemed like the best option in Idwal in thawing conditions. Led P1, nice ice to start with, the crux was getting up the narrow section at the top of the pitch as quickly as possible so as not to get too soaked by the stream running down it, without collapsing the crumbling ice there. Ken led P2, which had decent ice but was pretty wet due to a combination of rain and water streaming down the centre of the ice sheet. I did P3, which had a couple of interesting mixed type sections which probably aren't there when it's in good nick! A very wet but kind of fun day.

the_one_jim 06/Dec/10 AltLd O/S

A bit thin, so at the higher end of the grade. We added a belay near the top of the long ice section (pitch 3), I seconded the first half of this pitch and led through to do the second half. Hannes discovered that dropping ice screws is a bad idea...

Main pitch 2 went easily enough but belay (off two screws and an ice pillar) hung out a bit so felt serious. Used eight screws and a chopped out ice-threaded on the pitch itself. Great Sunday climb after a big day yesterday. Could've been in Lillaz. Top fun.

Easy, plastic ice. On P2 took steeper line on the right hand side, then traversed left into the 'normal' line closer to the overhanging rock wall as the ice at the top looked dodgy on the right hand side (the pillar hadn't formed). 2nd solo of the day.

thecurlyone 02/Jan/10 2nd O/S

Busy! We were behind 3 other parties when we reached the base at 8am. The ice that hadn't been hacked off by the other parties was good for both axe and screw.
