Good but possibly quite banked out. Rach led the Thincrack Chimney, and I led the Slabs Traverse and Great Cave Pitch.

Fiona Reid 06/Mar/16 AltLd O/S

Great route. Soloed first part then 3 long pitches to the top. Led thin crack chimney and ice slab plus a snow pitch to the top. Good conditions. Ice/ snow was lovely but not the best for screws.

Batt 06/Mar/16 AltLd

Good, shame about the hoards and the dodgy stomach! Soloed a long way up. Bottleneck at the first icy pitch, buried axe belay. Ice ok, pretty cruddy and aerated in places takes pics but screws looked pretty dodgy particularly at the cave pitch. Several pegs in situ lower down.

Good fun, climbed the right fork first, then abseiled and climbed back out the left fork.

Jonny Nick 15/Feb/16 AltLd

Much of the gully was spent swimming through powder. Top ice wall not well formed at all. V5 probably more fitting as a result of this.

lithos 24/Feb/13 AltLd

Great nick (III/3) and weather, I led top two pitches. Great fun and busy, but generally no problem as we arrived at belay just as the party ahead left. Carmen didn't appreciate the shoe box sized lump of ice dumped on her shoulder by the overtaking pair, thanx for that. Left a sling and krab at bottom, dropped a dmm bug and krab :-( !

Simon Caldwell 24/Feb/13 AltLd O/S

I led the icefall to start then 3 or 4 other short pitches, Rob led the last 2 inc cave pitch, various soloing and moving together. SHowing the signs of its popularity with lots of hooks and steps, no more than III in this state (Red Gully the day before was harder). Late-ish start meant we missed the queues and only occasionally saw people at belays (other than one impatient pair who pushed past). Brilliant route, would be good to get it in pristine nick sometime, ie before someone starts a UKC thread to summon the hoards!
