Third time lucky! Don't think I've ever logged a winter route as "worked" before, but we worked for this on! P1 still felt utterly brutal.
Neil Adams - AltLd RP - 01/Mar/14 with Andy Inglis
Probably the most effort/time to tick a single scottish winter route. Prior failure 29th Dec 2013, ab'ed from top of P2 knackered in fading light and no head torches.

Harry Holmes - AltLd O/S - 28/Jan/14 with Piotr Sulowski
Failure no 2! Route was plastered in cruddy ice. Andy won the toss for first pitch, took 2 falls and lowered off. I tried and got up it cleanly but spent 3.5hrs on the lead. Andy led P2 clean but by then we were both exhausted, soaked & frozen and it was getting dark. Hopefully third time lucky...

I'll be back...

Ground up. Axe ripped after crux when placing gear and fell to start again.

big lob on p1
phil64 - AltLd dog - 11/Mar/11 with dave evans
Greg Boswell - AltLd O/S - 20/Dec/10 with Mike Tweedley
Support team! I took one fall on the first pitch (desperate flare) and did the rest clean. Something of a steep learning curve. Topped out at 8pm.
