Murilo Lessa 10 Nov, 2019 AltLd Roger led P1, I did P2. P1 felt hard, technical and run out, harder than Hoarmaster on the conditions we had. The traverse was quite sketchy. P2 was a bit weird at the start with a long run out but seem we got frozen turf and hooks which made the going easier.

guitarshane 9 Dec, 2018 Lead dnf Gutted! Was going well, got passed the first roof, at around 20m though, reluctant to let go of the good hook for my right axe, I couldn't find an axe placement on my left to pull me over from the groove to the left wall. Cams useless in the big crack above my head so after hanging around scraping about for what felt like ages I took the lower off of shame like a total fanny! I shall return with more balls.

davkeo 18 Nov, 2017 AltLd O/S Walked into Sneachda and it was black so decided to walk up and drop into Lochain (for a look) which was in much better nick although still lean. Turf frozen. Teams on Hookers, SS, Fallout & Hoarmaster. I led p1 which was an excellent, sustained & interesting pitch. Crux was the traverse up high with poor axes & a delicate feel. Niall did the nice tech 5 bit off the belay & ran it to the top. A good first day of the season considering it was looking like a write off early on.

masa-alpin 17 Mar, 2017 AltLd O/S Superb. Great quality and sustained route and in great conditions (sadly only for today). Joe lead P1 and I lead P2+3 (straight-up exit). Started as the proper Scottish conditions with upward snowfall and I were on belay duty on P1 with 7 layers for my top and indispensable goggles. It warmed up by the late afternoon, and everything started to melt; (never-ending) snowfall later turned into rain, which must be even more damaging.

Hugh Simons 19 Nov, 2016 Lead O/S Led both pitches. Lean conditions, a huge contrast to 2 weeks ago where the whole crag was plastered and there was way more snow. First pitch felt pretty top end! Crux is the first roof which i took a long time to muster the courage to commit to. Apologies to everyone else in the corrie enjoying the peaceful weather day for my cursing and swearing on route! A great route.

Euan Todd 19 Nov, 2016 2nd O/S Awesome. First few metres were pretty thin with cruddy ice, but the rest was great. Definitely too hard for me to lead (right now), but I was pleased to get it clean on 2nd for my first route of the season. Crux was definitely passing the first roof - the 'thin' traverse was easy in comparison. Well done to Hugh, was a monster effort!

freudy_love 29 Jan, 2012 Lead dnf Got pumped and disco-legged just under the first roof (crux?) and ended up taking a rest on the rope. Considering the meat of the route was still to come, success seemed a but a faint glimmer of possibility and I lowered off to run and fight another day. Two previous grade V routes does NOT a steady, confident grade V leader make!! There is now also an insitu no. 10 wire at the first roof, a thread round the small chockstone 5m below and a hammered in medium sized hex a few metres off the ground used for the belay. Good Luck!
