Not sure how this gets III - easier than many a Scottish II. Nice line nevertheless with harder vars possible

Ice very thin, turf frozen all the way up apart from under the ice for the first 5m. Chockstone difficult due to thin condition. Nice day out all in all.

TAG_UTLEY 16/Jan/16 Lead O/S

Lots of powder but some good turf in places, ice needs to build some more.

Not really in condition-but climbable-a bit thin/tricky in a few places.

Accidentily went most of the way up the IV crack after the chimney/chockstone... Pooped myself when I realised and downclimbed the whole thing.

Zoomer 05/Mar/14 Lead O/S

Poor condition, avoided using axes on any turf( not frozen in the slightest). Shame because it looks like a nice line when in nick.

farmus21 01/Mar/14 Lead O/S

Stepped Ridge was rammed so this was a good alternative. Very soft/unconsolidated snow, very little ice and the turf is spongy. Still perfectly doable and a great day out in nice weather.

We went up the slabs to the left of the crack because it was full of unconsolidated snow, before joining the route further up. Good turf and felt about III.

only my second winter route and I have to say what a buzz. Watching Stuart, my mentor, negotiate the choc stones on the second pitch got me thinking, but thoroughly enjoyed the route and didn't feel out of my depth at any point. Great day out.

A great climb in beautiful weather! Conditions were good, plenty of frozen turf and ice. Took a slightly harder line up a crack to the right near the top. Would recommend this to anyone looking to make this a slightly harder grade III.

Snow unconsolidated, some but not all turf frozen and some tricky moves out of the crack on pitch 2 which were difficult to protect. Nice day out but needs a good freeze to firm everything up.

First ice step had been worn away by previous parties so climbed rock ledge on the left. Rest of route was in good condition but felt easy for the grade. More like a II with a couple of steeper steps. Still a great route and would recommend it as a first grade III due to it's ease and good protection.

Led pitch 2. Conditions improved from top to bottom. Somewhat unfrozen at the bottom and loose snow. From top of second pitch snow was much better. Only seemed to have a couple of tricky moves, so seemed easy for the grade. Finished up central gully, the top of which was in good nick.

Simon Caldwell 12/Jan/08 AltLd O/S

I led pitches 1 and 3, Will led 2. Then traversed into Central Gully and finished up that. Turf was mainly unfrozen so a good job the climbing was mainly on rock and snow! All very wintery looking and feeling, it was snowing for most of the climb.
