3.30am alarm after 3.5 hours' sleep! Snow on the roads up and needed half an hour's kip in the car park, so left car at 8, maybe. Long walk in with some crusty/deep snow in places. We'd thought about Shadow Buttress A but decided on Magic Pillar and Cathedral Chimney instead. Unfortunately there were teams on both. We went for the Chimney as the pair there looked to be well up it and the team on MP were a slow moving three. We soloed up to the start of the chimney proper only to find that the leader had backed off and the other climber was proceeding to have a bit of an epic. Euan led pretty well (placing 3 Tricams!) and I seconded pretty well overall, though one moment of unnecessary rope grabbing exiting the crux! Turf fairly well frozen. Pretty much no ice though, sadly. We topped out after sunset - without head torches - and fortunately found the Red Spout in fairly safe condition. Back at the car at 8.30pm. Long day!

Great fun, more pegs than a sport route.

As a three with Ali and Steve, lots of snow

Steven Andrews 13/Dec/14 AltLd O/S

would have been a bit easier with some ice but cool line and nice climb.

Led pitch to cornice. The bit above the bulge is not recommended until some consolidation. Time consuming and difficult cornice exit

Led up to the chimney and the cornice battle afterwards. Usidean took p2. Firm snow in the morning was noticeably softer by the time we topped out. Nice climbing on a super day!

Led Pitch 1, ML 2nd crux pitch. "Scottish" conditions with hill fog above 700m, visibility poor. Lower mixed ground banked out neve. Snow-ice in chimney variable-from crusted slab to solid in places. Snow gully at route top unconsolidated and sketchy wind slab...Interesting! Bold lead by ML on crux. 4.5 hours due to difficulty finding protection. Great day out!

Boggin condition. Turf okish not fantastic. Would be good climbing in better conditions. Made for a wee duel.

V cold - climbing as a rope of 3 Graham lead throughout. No ice present but bomer turf with any neve iron hard and a bit of fresh dodgy wind slab.

Thrutch-tastic! Very lean with no ice and no useable snow, lots of powder. Turf bomber, thankfully. Superb lead by Ric on the crux!

Not in stellar condition, but turf frozen below a wet surface and ice at back of the chimney. Good fun.

Led upto into the chimney in a long pitch, then Graham lead to the plateau in a second pitch. Good traditional thrutching!

A bit short lived this one. Some good chimney action though - always a pleasure.
