davkeo 8 Mar AltLd O/S In 4 pitches, including the approach pitch to the pillar, which was horrible & unconsolidated. 2nd pitch was very good & worth 2 stars. Good turf on 3&4. Topped out into a blizzard.

Sam Shilliday 11 Feb AltLd Lead P1 and P2. Lots of insitu gear on P1 but found P2 harder to protect. Great conditions with solid neve in places and bomber turf. The start of P1 doesn't have as big a belay ledge as it looks so gearing up lower down would have avoided some faff.
