Could be a boring snow plod. Tremendous outing in lean conditions, with one technical move to get over the chokestone.

Ticklists: Cairngorm Winter Climbs, 3 star Scottish winter.

First few pitch's were in good lean condition with a bit of ice and lots of solid snow. The giant Chockstone proved difficult with the low built up. Very nice route worth the difficulties. The walk out also proved difficult, during the day due to a lot of drifting snow, the path in t'Sneachda was totally covered for long periods making slow going in the deep snow and whiteout conditions.

Banked-up with a two inch crust which hits the sweet spot (thick enough for the picks but thin enough for a couple of bashes with the feet for good steps). Don't look up though; you might get a face-full of icy chips from the sunny right wall. Hardly even grade 2.

Seconded this route at the end of the winter season. Great condition considering. Was my first winter climb. Found it easy most of the way, with only one patch of near horizontal ice that took a little more thought. Excellent weather, with little wind and a slight snow fall. Plenty of snow. Just on the edge of freezing. Great fun for a first attempt. Ian Stewart, who led, felt it was a good quality grade II.

The crux chockstone looked to be easy III under today's conditions. We decide to climb a 'more sporting' crack which splits the wall that lies to the left of the crux chockstone. We found this variation to be a bit more sporting than we expected, but thankfully it is well protected (III,5). I think that this variation is worth mentioning, as I guess that on a very thin day it might be preferable to the cracks on either side of the chockstone.

Lead the first 2 pitchs (well i say lead i only placed one piece of pro) and then Matt lead the last pitch to the top. Lots of ice all the way up, didn't even see the chockstone

Great route in brilliant condition. Hard to find the base of the route in the cloud but an excellent day out. Interesting ice and also an exposed traverse to finish. (3 pitches to find climb and then 4 pitches of climbing)
