The main icefall may be taken at around grade III. There are also some short steps above and below the main pitch. Rock protection is poor and the rock is friable so be prepared to belay from the ice or frozen turf.

Climbed it late last night and bagged first night climb. The climbs still in good form and a lot of fun. Would like to go back for a play around there in the day next time.

Ice in the south and nearly April, had to be done!

Took first pitch, up to the bottom of the main pitch. Jules did 3/4 of the main pitch. I climbed the final steep last few meters of the main pitch and then led the rest. Really great climb. Felt like a proper III. First grade III lead.

A quick trip to enjoy the late winter conditions. Only one propper pitch, but it was still good fun. Lucy led the little waterfall at the end.

Very enjoyable in the sunshine. I had my first lead on ice on a small pitch at the top. I didnt think I would be doing that at the start of the season!

Solo'd the small steps up to the main pitch. Onsight lead of main pitch but took my first lead fall just as about to pull over the top. Bounced down to step below before stopping just as rope started to come tight on last bit of gear. Didnt have the balls to face the thin/hollow ice on the left again so traversed across and went up the steep ground on the right (which turned out to be harder) Seconded top pitch.

Climbed this in perfect blue sky conditions, it was a bit wet at the bottom, but had good consolidated ice on the main wall of climbing. The top sector had an ice fan and had become quite steep (steeper than grade 3) on the right, so we took this line. :0) A great little climb.
