BarneyLoosemore 20 Jan, 2018 AltLd O/S No ice or useful snow for first pitch which was hard. Last pitch was lovely. Eventful day - got a black eye from falling ice, Alasdair lost a crampon just before starting the final pitch which he later retrieved, and ropes got stuck once on the plataeu which entailed an abseil.

Andrew Sloan 7 Jan, 2018 Lead dnf Decided to give this a go as it was logged on ukc earlier in the week. Unfortunately there was no useable ice so I struggled, dry tooling up for 15m before my axes popped trying to pull into the corner. 2 bits of gear ripped and I took a 30 footer. Fortunately just my pride hurt. Did the Slant as a consolation route.

In today's condition, where rocks were very well rimed but ice on rock was not thick enough, P1 was both bold and hard - practically 15 metres run out from the deck up to tech 5, then the crux of tech 5/6 with OK-ish protection higher - solid grade VI. P3 was solid grade IV.

Keith-Getoutadventures 5 Feb, 2012 Lead dnf Fuck. Me. No ice, Tricky going to gain the corner with pish gear. Then harder continuing up the corner, A good nut on left wall in crack system. Got to the corner a few metres away from the easy ground and couldnt top it due to lack of anything for placements. Then struggled to gain the left wall via the crack system on top of the ledge, Definately tech 6 alone for that as it involved a horrid scary mantle, Got a nice chockstone thread with some insitu and just bailed off leaving a biner. If anyone can get to it, you're free to it as im impressed you chose to continue. If however its icy good conditions, I want it back! hah.
