Great nic

nation1 28/Feb AltLd

Very cold day with the easterly winds. Started late from glenridding @ 12:30 due to bad traffic everywhere especially m6. Turf frozen lots of powder snow but route very doable. Didn’t see any other climbers. Enjoyed the route just need more of it! Topped out with stunning views and watched the sun set. Decent via swirl edge

Top end IV in these conditions. Great, bridgy route, with bomber turf but ice decaying as below. (That said, snow and cold snap could/should fix it.)

Remyveness 25/Feb AltLd

Very thin runnel of ice up the chimeneys and well frozen turf.

Neil McA 25/Feb Lead

Some good icy neve and concrete hard frozen turf, but, too many ascents - the ice and neve is now starting to fall apart in the back of the grove.

Missed first ice pitch as it was busy and Gully 1 have 3 teams waiting. We climbed up left of Bladerunner and traversed below the 2nd step which I led with no gear consequently felt quite bold. Turf fantastic with good ice.

So nice! Conditions were near perfect for climbing, but made it a little bold. Found the first step to be the crux for which I only had one dodgy ice screw!

Looked easier than it was, tempting me above my normal solo grade - ice was good but at the steep parts there could have been a little more!

Kinda climbed by accident. Thought it was slightly harder variation to Gully. Cracking effort by Amy on only 2nd proper winter route. Good condition.

ice wasn't properly formed and snow was very powdery, but a good first climb of the season must repeat some time further into the season.

Great climbing, worth a star or two. Start felt pushy and poorly protected but then you reach a huge Torque and gear. Above is a romp, with a nice bridging sequence. Worth seeking out.

found more gear this time. very enjoyable.

liamlonsdale 05/Feb/10 2nd O/S

Second route of day. Conditions were good, a little warm which left us wanting the turf to be a little more frozen and the snow a bit harder. Great moves up the gulley, some really nice high steps and torquing moves with the axes.

Route not in condition at all. No ice or even frozen turf. Very steep for a grade 4, especially with only powder to sink your axe into!

with Karl, Dave Lomax
Karlos 28/Dec/09 Lead O/S

Swam up #2 gully to get to the route. Firm snow and a little ice at the bottom, but soon deteriorated back to soft snow and buried turf. Decent nut placements were there but hard to find, which made the sketchy moves up a little easier to make.

If this is the route we climbed and the description sounds ricght. Good climbing, bold low down as the ice and snow was melting and falling of also no gear. Upper section had been well hacked at by previous party and required lots of weird briging and thrutching to get round, really good fun though with sound gear and melting ice just where it was needed.
