Desperate for V, fell off p2 and wrecked my shoulder. Would be fine with some neve but horrible under loose powder.

LJC 27/Feb AltLd G/U

Lead crux p2, and p3. A beautiful day, but terrible loose snow. Took a fall at the top of p3 when cruddy snow ice ripped through. Felt desperate for the grade in today's conditions.

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...

A good day out in some nice, absorbing corners there. Continued up and over to Pygmy Ridge.

pretty hard

MSchobitz 11/Feb 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!

Kirill 05/Mar/16 AltLd

In good nick but quite hard. Definitely felt like tech 7 on the P2. A little spindrifty in the main corner of the P3. Very good route. Graham was kind enough to let me lead all the technical pitches.

Really good. Great gear and hooks/torques but not much for your feet at some points

lead first and last pitch, seconded crux pitch and crack of magic crack in the middle. the crux pitch felt more like VI, maybe some neve would help...

Started up Doctor Janis and finished up The Genie, climbed the main corner at about V 5 due to the bomber névé. Protection was virtually non-existent.

An enjoyable route, which we climbed after failing on White Magic. Probably easy in the grade in today's conditions.

Lead corner on p2 - positive thoughout but slabs verglassed. Cruxes were hard enough on second.. Wild day!

tim newton 17/Jan/13 AltLd dog

fell off the bulge on pitch 1, hard move, at least tech 6...or maybe we were on the wrong bulge. Lead pitch 2 which I thought was the crux in current condition (hard V,7). Pitch 3 was good, felt about V,6. Glad to do pitches 2 and 3 clean.

James S 17/Jan/13 AltLd O/S

edvin led 1st, tim 2nd, me 3rd. first pitch wasnt great i thought but other two were great. really tenuous for feet on 2nd pitch and then 3rd was sustained but with mostly bomber hooks.

Almost to the top of the route when my crampon twisted off in the corner crack and forced a retreat a few meters from the end of the difficulties ! All three pitches gave some awesome climbing even if a little buried by powder.

More sustained than it looked from the base. P1 was well protected & technical with thin moves. P2 up the corner/groove was more sustained & brutal but not as technically hard.
