Well rimed up but thin in places and all pitches hard except delightful ridge to top. good belays but hard for IV. Must improve my axe technique or my axes.

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.

Good frozen turf. Did the direct corner (or Loki pitch, as I now know), only for a following Alan Hinkes to describe me as gnarly. Year made.

Great climb, my second proper winter route so very happy with it. Found it pretty tricky, definitely glad I wasn't leading! The turf was not fully frozen, which lead to some exciting moments.

Bouldering plans cancelled without thinking twice on 6pm Friday. You can't expect it to be deserted on such a good forecast.. and on a weekend!!! Lead all pitches, felt hard, winter apprenticeship is going well...

Great blue sky day. Good climbing with some quite tricky sections and snow not always consolidated - good belays

Scott Quinn 19/Jan/16 AltLd dnf

good conditions until I went direct at crux instead of the stepping into the bay not much on it, turf in the corner was soft ice brittle left it for another day after falling off, good gear atleast

Tom.Priestley 19/Jan/16 AltLd dnf

I climbed P1 then Scott fell off P2 five times and we went home as it was getting dark.

Almost clean but slid off the top of the final pitch. Cool route.

Both pitches!

P1 + P3 will (including untying one rope!) 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/12 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.

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.

Amazing conditions. Plastered all over in perfect neve/ice. You could climb almost anywhere. I stopped on a minute ledge (boot width) to take in the view about halfway up, and savour the moment before it was all over.
