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.
andyinglis - AltLd RP - 01/Mar/14 with Neil Adams

Abseiled back down after third pitch. Not sure if that is a full tick?
Smith42 - AltLd dnf - 07/Feb/14 with Lindsay Yule

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...
Neil Adams - AltLd dnf - 29/Dec/13 with Andy Inglis

I'll be back...
Neil Adams - AltLd dnf - 28/Jan/12 with Andy Inglis

Ground up. Axe ripped after crux when placing gear and fell to start again.
akhughes - AltLd β - 19/Jan/12

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.
