First winter adventure, lots and lots of snow!

Epic 17 hr day. Difficult nav conditions. Route good, and well frozen. Mostly climbed in dark as we only found the buttress at 2 o'clock!

As Dave said, a mission to retrieve stuck ropes but a still a very good and varied climb!

MrRiley 13/Dec/15 AltLd O/S

A mission to retrieve stuck abb ropes from the previous day on Savage Slit but actually turned out to be a nice route! Skipped the traverse on pitch 2 and Debs led the difficult wall, great fun!

Pleasantly surprised by an interesting little wall on the second pitch. Not a particularly direct line, but enjoyable all the same.

Only realised we'd forgotten to do the sit-start midway through the second pitch so bailed immediately rather than be tempted to claim the full ascent

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.

Led P2 (think I ran a bit of P3 into this pitch) + P4 (final pitch of Savage Slit). Snow was quite unstable in places but enough solid stuff when you needed it.

Good route. Did first 2 pitches then moved across and finished up western route, with a nice little tricky section to finish (~IV,4/5).

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/07 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.

great day out. Took all day in badly unconsolidated conditions. pretty sketchy ascent on snowed up rock!
