Misha 31 Jan, 2016 AltLd O/S Great route, pretty hard and at time bold, I'd say VII 7. I did P1&2 in one 50m pitch, a decent VI. Would be easier with neve in the back of the groove, we just had fairly useless snow. Alex did P3&4 in one 45m pitch. P3 is the crux - tenuous step up left onto a ledge with gear off to the side, then a sustained technical crack / vague groove which required a fair bit of torquing. P4 is no pushover either. Mini epic getting off the route - decided to ab it as topped out after 5 after a late start (came over from Aviemore). Both ropes stuck on the 60m first ab (off wires 15 back from the edge), managed to pull down enough of one strand to just about get down to the gully with a bit of downclimbing. Back at the road at 8. Expensive! Unless someone kindly retrieves the ropes... EDIT - ropes kindly retrieved a week or so later by Mark S!

alexm198 31 Jan, 2016 AltLd O/S Great route. Did it in two pitches, I had the second which included the crux leftwards step and the steep technical wall above. Good hooks where needed. Conditions pretty good, quite plastered in snow and turf frozen high up but no neve where it would've been useful...! Bloody nightmare getting off the route as we didn't want to have to summit. First grade VII (even if it is a soft one).
