This climb is in 20 logbooks, and on 4 wishlists.

Very good value for the grade. Soloed the initial section then 5 pitches to the end of the difficulties, led even ones. Mike's variation on pitch 3 was really hard to second. Turf well frozen.

Did the whole of the ridge proper moving together in a three. Poor conditions too warm and started raining with heavy wind half way up, which made it feel a little serious. Kinda spicy pitch on left of slab. Enjoyed bits of it despite hideous conditions.

With +20kg rucksacks! Great climb, hard pitch after reaching base of triangular slab, perhaps took a difficult line..
ollie1 - AltLd β - 27/Jan/12

Difficult snow conditions making for a slow approach and some gnarly climbing. Ab'd off from half way up the slabs.
Moonstone Hippy - AltLd dnf - 17/Dec/11 with Phil

Move together for much of it, although pitched a pretty technical pitch, just left of the obvious slab. Great route, no stars in new Cicerone guide!
Ken Applegate - Lead - 19/Jan/11 with Lena Brune, Martyn Stott

Moved together lower section, 2 pitches then soloed top section. Great bumslide down the ski run to finish.
