Consolidation route. Exposed turf is good. The rest of the crag needs a thaw and refreeze.

Snatched in a 36hr raid from Sheffield. Poor vis; light snow all day. I led P1 & 3; Nik P2 & 4. Turf was generally frozen and rock hoared up but no ice and lots of powder snow meant steady going at times. Both P1 & 2 had some techy mixed moves; P3 was the easy-but-intimidating unprotectable 10m traverse across snowed up slabs to reach the arete. From top, abbed into col and walked out same way. SMC Addendum recommends IV 6 for this route now. Felt overall V in the conditions we encountered. An enjoyable first foray onto the mountain. (Moment of the day was when I was udging up a steep groove and the back bail of my crampon clipped itself into my last runner...)

Well frozen where turf was exposed, hard work cleaning the route. Spent a while with the route finding at the top but got there eventually after backing off a corner that seemed way too technical for the grade.

Unsure about best route through final summit wall, seemed harder than crux and unlikely at grade. Time pressing, so abbed from block just below.

Early start with good walk in to sunrise. Route in shade. Gary lead pitches 1/2 up angled ramp to vertical crack to difficult right corner and traverse. Pitch 3 vertical corner with thin feet to right traverse over frozen turf. Pitch 4 with weather turning right of arĂȘte over ledges to awkward final move. Ab off top in darkness to notch. great route recomended

Climbed with Gordon Gray. Crag was blanketed in soft snow so a lot of clearing required to find gear which is plentiful. Turf overall bomber. I linked and climbed pitches 1 & 2 which in retrospect was a mistake as communication can be difficult and the pitch meanders so rope drag was a problem. The traverse from the top of the initial groove on pitch 2 was the crux and very tricky. Once the moves are worked out you just need to commit. Not hard but very tricky. Pitch 3 very good fun and pitch 4 harder than expected with well protected technical climbing. We abbed off the top into the notch on the ridge with one 60 m rope.

Great second pitch. Turf frozen - for now!

Sesame Groove pitch excellent. Almost gave myself groin strain on the traverse moves at the top of the groove.
