Climbed only about 10 metres and fell. Decided not to continue.

Another excellent day out! Planned to do the hoarmaster but couldn't get to it so did this instead. Route was harder than expected and a bit powdery in places so gear was hard to find, especially on the top out. Great fun though! Got back to Sheffield at 5am on Monday... didn't make it to my 9am

Led P1&2. Bit of a grovel on p1. Had to dangle pack b/w legs for a few moves. Wall at start of p2 was definitely tech 6, lack of neve made gaining the ledge feel hard. Chimney was indeed awkward, then maybe got off route a bit? Line isn't easy to follow between bottom chimney and top gully. Masses of powder didn't make it easier. Nice lead by Tom on p3, tricky, unprotected moves up the wall to the rhs of the gully, though there were no flakes mentioned in the guidebook? Top end IV. Top day out!

should of heeded michael83's warning... too slow and crux just too much on the day - it is nails without buildup on the belay ledge, bailed. Good lead by Ben on first pitch. Thanks to other teams for great banter, throwing our anchor down after the ab and for the puncture wounds on my arm ;-)

Not quite the three star classic i was expecting. Don't climb this under powder! first pitch was a grovel, 2nd pitch was good until my axe ripped whilst digging through 2foot of powder to find gear above the wall. top out on the last pitch was horrendous on 80degree powder snow on slabs. Tried to pass chockstone on the left, but too tricky, ended up taking the right exit which was no push over. Sustained IV with multiple tech 6 akward moves in lean conditions which makes it more like V. In short, climb it when everything is consolidated and it's banked out!

Thought the crux interesting for tech 6 in lean conditions.

The disgustingly awkward 1st pitch (3 stars really?) took ages so we retreated before crux. There is now a nice in situ belay there and if anyone fancies returning it that would be great.

First pitch was spent more on the knees than poons. 2nd pitch up the crux wall was safe but in the conditions was pretty desperate. Third pitch don't think we were on route as it was prob another tech 5/6 move. Loads of rime. Topped out in the dark with head torch in the bag at the bottom of the route. Then a 2 hr down climb in the dark landed us at the bags. 12hrs car to car.

Hard. Great lead by Tim on crux, other pitches also pretty interesting

Not sure we were on the right route... certainly weren't when i took leader fall (stopped by factor 2 onto ice axe leash) 5m from top of crag trying to climb ourselves out of dead end gully in dark.. quite an adventure in the end.. not quite an epic.
