seanhendo123 23 Jan AltLd O/S Great route but definitely not IV5 as in the guidebook, hard V6 on the day. The main difficulties in 4 pitches then moved together to the summit. Lots of powder so hard work and made the top easier ground pretty insecure. Great day out

Kirill 6 Jan, 2018 AltLd My first time climbing on the Buachaile in winter. Had some complications getting to the start. The route itself took a good few hours too. I thought it was hard for the grade and quite sustained. The first chimney pitch, which Mike led, felt particularly hard, tech 7 perhaps. I imagine it would get easier if banked out a bit. There was significant amount of vertical swimming higher up which ate a lot of time I think. The light was fading as I was leading the the last pitch, and completely dark by the time we topped out. Beautiful windless night, felt so privileged to be there!

stoneback 11 Feb, 2017 2nd O/S Great outing, seems to be overlooked. Long route, climbed in 6 pitches with interesting chimneys all the way. Last long pitch was hard and sustained. Easy descent - blue skies - perfection.
