Epic mountain day. Parked at top car park then gimped in. (Some debate over whether we should have parked at Sugar Bowl.) 2 crux sections, 1st was a mixed teeter across a "thin" upward trending ledge from left to right with nothing for the axes then the 2nd was, in my case, a very messy & noisy fight up a slightly overhanging waterfall. Seb led with far more elegance than I seconded (Dam him!) Needed torches for the last few pitches then waited at the top for the other 5 in the party and yo moped back. Bloody good day!

Cruddy ice on first pitch and belay hard to find, good ice over the curtain with good conditions above.

First time on ice. Climbed with absolutely no style, clue or hope - but got to the top. Guide gave it 4 v but I have nothing to compare it to yet - it was just sunnier than yesterday so felt pleasant.

Good soft ice. Straight up the righthand free hanging ice sheet. Short steep crux. Brilliant! Worth several stars.

Amazing climb, worthy of stars. Climbed ice up to the steep curtain then climbed along between the rock and the ice before breaking back out onto the ice and climbing to the top. Quality adventure

Fantastic steep ice. Unlike anything I've seen in Scotland. Ab'd off from cave behind the curtain and ice pillar due to water pouring down next pitch. Route may have been k9.
