Woooo! Just as good as the hype. The first pitch was a bit sketch in lean conditions - would definitely recommend the left hand start early season. 4 pitches (ran the fingers and the crux slab together on p4), led 2 and 4.

Done in 2 parts in 2 days on 3 attempts. Proper lesson in winter climbing, conditions and stubbornness. 1st go: start was bare, desperate and took ages, did only 2 pitches, abbed off b2. 2nd go: via Broken Gully, foul weather buried us and bailed before reaching our previous high point. 3rd go: plowed for every placement, retrieved all our ab gear and topped out. Not possible without Scott the carpark-drunk-Scot who dried our sopping clothes from attempt 2 as he had to empty his gas bottle for some reason I couldn't translate in English. Got kicked out with a "get tae fook oot ma hoose!" when we refused to down more of his Jägermeister. Tried to dry the rest over my van gas hob but they were still damp Scott, ya wee bastart.

Teappleby 13/Feb/16 Lead O/S

Total team smash from Dawn and Eloise on her first winter route! Great day out, but felt the route wasn't as good as I was expecting, considering it's meant to be one of 'the classics' I thought fluted buttress direct was a much better route in a similar style. Anyway moving alright up to the pitch below the fingers, but then a combination of darkness and even deeper powder meant progress slowed. Final section behind the fingers looked desperate and very collapsey so bailed into he top of red gully, which was slightly more solid. Beautiful evening/sky and back at 9.30 to food and warmth. Staying in a hut is so nice!

Dawn_K_B 13/Feb/16 2nd O/S

Great, hard, long day. Eloise's first winter route and Tom led it all, smashed it. Took far too long and topped out in the dark. P4 was a powdery mess so dropped down right a few metres then traversed across to the top of Red Gully and escaped through the powder there. Top effort from all, exhausted at the car park at 9:30pm...!

Crag was plastered with this thick useless shit that took ages to clear to get at the features. Went a bit skiwif on the first pitch (followed some insitu gear steeply into a bay, that continued to sketchy slabs) so bailed on that and went out left. Top pitches spectacular - glorious weather!

Sutty22 30/Oct/12 2nd

A good amount of snow and ice but melting fast. The wind increased as we ascended so the fingers were fun. The final headwall was excellent, looks blank but enough there when you get on it. Felt pretty comfortable with the climbing but struggled with some of the high step-ups due to my lack of flexibility.
