Misha ?? AltLd O/S A good route on an increasingly wild day. Wanted to do something short and sharp as it was the day before our BMG winter entrance test - this fitted the bill. Soloed the easy ground on The Message to below the crux pitch. Good belay to the right. I took a while to get going as the climbing was tricky right at the start (less than ideal hooks and slabby feet) while the gear wasn’t entirely convincing. A few moves reached good hooks, footholds and gear. Steady after that - fair bit of tech 5 and 6 but good gear and good rests. Slow going in the snowy early season (!) conditions. Tim took the second pitch, which had a tough start and interest was maintained - reckon it’s worth a good V 6. I did a 10m chimney type thing to easy ground and a mercifully short belay in the savage wind at the top. Walking off back to the sacks took a while as the goggles were in the sacks! 8 hour round trip from the van.

Alastair R 4 Jan, 2014 AltLd O/S Good climbing but quite icy (verglass) conditions today which made placing gear challenging. Cams were worthless. Worthwhile route, first pitch is the crux but plenty of interest on the other two.

Will Smith 20 Feb, 2012 - Guided by Adam Hughes. Full winter condition at start of first pitch, after which a spectacularly fast thaw stripped the rime completely by the start of the second pitch. The cracks were still icy on the third pitch so it still felt in winter condition overall. Very cold hands from the running water! I managed it all clean except for a move on the third pitch where a dodgy turf placement ripped. Great route overall.
