300m, 4 pitches. The obvious line on the left side of the upper corrie finishing at the point where the upper connecting ridge of A'Chioch meets the summit plateau. There are a large number of ice pitches of which the first may be the hardest; sometimes it can be avoided on the left.

Did the first pitch then bailed, a touch too thin. No gear on first pitch...

A bit cruddy with gaps appearing. Screws unconvincing.

disintegrating fast, especially at narrow bits with some interesting short bits of mixed. Great belay ledge and view before final pitch - wonderful stuff. Led 1, 3 and 5.

Pretty good climb. Did it in 4 pitches. A bit unconsolidated in the easier sections. Two guys behind us were 74 and 68 years old!!
