michael83 8 Feb, 2015 AltLd O/S Wasn't sure if it was "in" when we walked in considering there was very little hoar on the rock. However, the route follows turf, icey grooves and neve so everything was in good climbing condition. No stand out crux, but pretty sustained. Make sure and read the guide book regards pitch 2, it's a bit confusing to start but makes sense once you start climbing. about 70m of V and only 20m of neve romping which is a nice change from most of lochnagar's bigger routes. worth the two stars.

geoff.comley 7 Jan, 2012 AltLd O/S First winter climb in Lochnagar. Very high winds coming through the Col but thankfully the corrie was relatively wind free (apart from the rising spindrift ;) First pitch is has some very nice climbing with plenty of turf when needed. Took the second pitch of spellbound due to the grooves not being in condition. Third pitch was epic, couldn't fit?? up the chimney so took the right hand groove line that had some awesome climbing. great day out.
