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!Thoms6974 - AltLd O/S - 06/Apr/13 with Uisdean, Stuart

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.
