βeta: Nice climbing. Tricky move right, and final groove seems hard. If it defeats you (like it did us!), escape left possible, down to top of V.Groove, then a decent (III?) turfy pitch back up R. to the top of the buttress.

DSM 1 Apr, 2018 Lead O/S Rime, snow & frozen turf but no ice. Lots of fun albeit somewhat tricky in such conditions. Mid section of top p3 groove avoided by detour left, up the rock then back into the groove for the last few metres.

I did P2 but went straight up (as for Loki i think) then stepped left to use the obvious triangular flake which was clean with no usabale ice (see pics) as the Loki corner above was very thin. Great gear (massive hex) and safe but i thought technically v. hard (maybe IV 5/6 but need someone to confirm) and fun

Will Smith 10 Dec, 2012 AltLd Led pitch 1 and 3. Rob led the second pitch but went straight up towards the steep corner rather than traversing right. We ended up moving out left trying to torque in the wide crack with very little for feet. Bloody awkward and definitely harder than grade IV! Rob led it smoothly, I fell off! Conditions were decent. Turf very well frozen, snow well frozen and cracks generally free of ice. Pitch 3 was ok for grade IV but the turf is very thin and would be impossible in unfrozen conditions.

Jonny_86 22 Jan, 2011 AltLd Not perfect conditions. The turf wasn't fully frozen which making pacements less secure. There was no snow on the rock which made placing protection easy. Some of the moves were tough. The crux pitch was good but the first, which we soloed, wasn't very exciting. Second climb that day. Walked back in the dark. Good day out really.
