Please refrain from climbing outside

Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.

Rob84 15 Dec, 2019 AltLd O/S Great snowed up rock condition - turf mostly well frozen except the odd little patch under deeper snow but easily avoided. Clear cracks for gear and tons of great hooks made for a cracking route. At the upper end of III,4 I’d say - possibly verging on III,5 or IV,4 for the top pitch?

ladislav 14 Dec, 2019 2nd O/S We got confused and went round to the right of the arete rather than following the line on the topo. This variation felt quite a bit harder than III,4, and I was unable to lead the second pitch as planned.

AndyGriffiths 30 Nov, 2019 AltLd O/S Great way to start the season with some spice. Deviated a bit from the guidebook pitches. I led the two steep steps lower on the rib. Dave then took the following cracks and final wall. Pretty lean early season conditions, but a good chance to get rock hocks and torques cranking.

David Cooper 30 Nov, 2019 AltLd O/S Andy led first two stepped sections on the ridge. I led the twin crack section and up over the final short wall to the top (with slight terrible route reading detour and retreat). Didn't know winter climbing involved so many hand jams and the occasional finger lock. First route of the year. Enjoyable cluster of ropes, leashes and fear

That was the hardest section, 2 overhanging corners with tat which I didn't see. Went about 40m to belay just before the last short wall. Great fun pitch with lots of climbing and good use of knees.
