Martin McKenna - UKC 23 Dec, 2018 AltLd O/S Led pitch 2 which was really interesting. Quite a bit of torquing with bad feet. although generally quite secure feeling until the final move near to the belay. Pitch 3 corner pitch also great.

calumhicks 23 Dec, 2018 AltLd O/S Great route with some contrasting pitches. Powder conditions today. Led pitch 3 (the corner), which was sustained but never too hard and well protected. Pitch 2 has some tough moves, but also is well protected.

Roberttaylor 7 Jan, 2018 Lead O/S Hard, sustained. Closer to VI 7 under powder. Got the start a bit wrong and belayed just up and right from the crack and roof, ended up dropping sideways (hooking a stuck cam) to get back into route. Neve on ledges would make this so much easier.

Chrismith 27 Feb, 2017 AltLd dog Powder and cruddy ice fest. First pitch was buried with hardly any gear - think I placed about 4 bits. Fell of seconding the crux (twice!) when an axe ripped in the steep snowy mess. Felt desperate and neve or decent ice would have helped considerably...

MSchobitz 11 Feb, 2017 AltLd O/S Led P1&3. Wanted to do Magic Crack, but decided to leave it for another day after the first few meters of it were very iced up. Thought we'd just nip up the rest of this instead. Thought wrong - hard battle on P3. Lots of useless powder, poor hooks and negligible feet. Chimney techniques in an open-book corner? Oh yes. Pretty much only stayed on due to friction of my Gore-Tex. Felt more like VI 7? Definitely harder than Fallout Corner or the few other VIs I've done. Solid effort by Harry on the equally hard P2!
