acrkirby 1 Dec, 2018 Lead Lead all, First two pitches easy and well protected. Top pitch was dire though suspect we went wrong as we didn't meet up with Savage Slit as route description said. Powdery snow lead to a horrible crawl up a chute with little in gear or axe placements.

Potsy 25 Feb, 2018 AltLd Great but hard day, led 2nd and 4th pitch. Climb itself was in good nic, well frozen and nice ice. First pitch was quite challenging mixed climbing, opted the harder face on 2nd pitch which was really fun and ice on last pitch was good fun.

Big Lee 22 Apr, 2012 AltLd O/S Poor snow conditions. We had intended to climb Third Man but moving left off Sidewinder was impossible without frozen turf so we continued up Sindwinder. This itself was challenging enough as we largely had to climb it in a mixed fashion. Finished up the last pitch of Western Route.

olibear2 13 Feb, 2007 AltLd O/S 4 Pitches. Led 1, 3 and 4. One 60m rope created a lot of drag on 3rd lead. Next time take two ropes - also gives possibility of abseiling Savage Slit at top of 3rd lead. Little ice. Some very welcome frozen turf. The sun beat us!

RobScotland 27 Jan, 2007 AltLd O/S Most of climb about right for the grade but very problematical at crux - would have been straightforward with a bit more snow or ice but in lean conditions with no good ice and sugary snow crux was awkward and demanding.
