Good route, veered off in error after the chockstone and went direct on the headwall (Jail House Break) at the right hand end of the top ledge, pumpy but well protected. Would be a good direct finish to Smokestack.

Excellent route with a big feel. Traverse was a very awkward and a bit sketchy. Done in 3 pitches. Led guidebook 1, 2, 4 and 5.

The year I have put is wrong. The biggest feeling route I have done in the northern corries. The rampy thing moving up and right above the terrace is thin. I fell off seconding the top pitch carelessly.

Sustained quality with a lot of variety. 1st winter route since accident. Must be mended. Cheers Adam.

Apart from the breather at the mid way ledge pretty sustained. great fun with varied and intresting moves. An instant thaw hit as I left the last belay.

Was a bit confused after the chock stone, make sure you move left and up, not right... First pitch was really good value. Glad i didn't lead the poo your pants traverse!

Good route under tricky conditions. Jim lead most of the hard stuff, which was a bloody good effort for his first grade VI!
Neil Adams - AltLd O/S - 19/Dec/09 with Jim Higgins
Very windy, cold, snow, spindrift, cold hands. Ice choked and therefore sparse protection. I sipped a couple of times moving up from the delicate traverse at the start of pitch 3, trying to move back up too soon I think. Challenging conditions!
jameshiggins - AltLd - 19/Dec/09 with Neil Adams
Climbing all seamed reasonable, being cruxy instead of sustained. Had a wee slip on the easy start of the first pitch fro some reason, also dropped my axe on the third pitch after completing the traverse, it very luckily landed on the midway ledge and was dewly recovered.

A nice climb, good conditions with plenty of rime and some powder. Original line could be improved by taking the second pitch direct.
adw07 - AltLd O/S - 04/Jan/09 with Andy Main
Route under powder and very bold in places due to ice filled cracks so felt more like VII,7. Finish up top pit jail house rock.
