Rockfax Description
150m. This is a combination of the icefall that forms at the base of the crag and mixed ground above. The icefall is the best bit and you can traverse off right after climbing it. The upper buttress is climbed from ledge to ledge on heather. © Rockfax

In excellent condition, which came as a surprise, we were half expecting to take the climbing kit for a walk. Approached via some ice scrambling up the frozen stream in North Gully, then did the route in 4 pitches (roughly tech grades 2,4,3,1), I led the even pitches.

Led first pitch. Second (vertical) pitch was thin, with clear, brittle, chandelier and fluted ice and water running over it so we top roped it. first time I've climbed this type of ice and it was quite exciting even on a top rope! Headed back down to meet Mark after the second pitch so would like to come back and climb the complete route in better conditions.
