Al_Mac 7 Jan, 2018 Lead Cathy's first proper winter climb. A stunning day made up for a bit of waiting around for other parties. Lots of powder in the first and last pitches, although some bomber neve deep down if you did the digging for it. Middle pitch was really steady but enjoyable 3D climbing with hooks where you wanted them.

neal 9 Dec, 2017 AltLd O/S Led P2 (1st pitch of Andromeda after leaving Milky Way). Some good climbing up through the chimneys. Nice route, surprisingly good nick, frozen turf and a bit of ice. Quite a bit of powder and spindrift of course.

CaelanB 9 Nov, 2016 AltLd O/S great route, had to do a fair amount of digging, Though otherwise in good nic, I agree with the consensus of it being a hard IV,4.

Big Lee 18 Jan, 2014 Lead O/S Wild conditions. White out with high winds. Difficulty even finding the crag. Main pitch was banked out and icy. Tech 4 but no gear for 40m after the initial peg on the right. Easily V 4. Cornices started collapsing everywhere towards the top of the route. Including a large one that I was belaying directly beneath, which struck my partner on the lower belay. Fell through a cornice 60m whilst skirting West trying to descend from the plateau. Fortunately I was a long way beyond Number 4 Buttress. Epic!
