250m, 5 pitches. A fairly long water ice route up the frozen stepped walls of the Allt nah-Aire waterfall. The final steep 50m pitch is the crux. The route can be up to 400 m long, but often best started a little higher up where the ice is steeper and better.

MrRiley 23 Mar, 2013 2nd O/S A fun route and great to get something done given the forecast. It's all about the last pitch and it didn't disappoint - a superb lead by Debs!

Ken Applegate 22 Mar, 2013 Lead A day of work. The route was reasonably sheltered given the 90mph+ winds up high, and the ice was in good condition. Descended via the diagonal ramp about 75m east of route.

jamestheyip 19 Dec, 2010 AltLd O/S Awesome climbing in beautiful setting. Done in lean condition and the ice was quite crusty. Found it harder than Peter Pan Direct (V,5) which we did the day before.

sophiecb 5 Dec, 2010 2nd Almost in condition - a bit wet in places. Fantastic climbing, particularly last two pitches, which were made a bit spicier by G taking the route off to the right. Temperature inversion. Lovely day. Gondola back down to car park :)

Lawman 6 Mar, 2010 2nd O/S It was wet - steep and falling off the rock. Possibly the last ascent this year but Alan will confirm that. He graded it at 4 due to the fact that the thing was falling down as we climbed.....
