200m. Brilliant old school route with a bit of everything. Recommended.

The snow is soft but abundant. However, be prepared for slush conditions in Spring Climbing has 1 tough section and a nice ridge but manageable. The initial approach is long while the down climb is medium but steep ground

Mixed 1-axe scramble on snow/turf/rock. Moved together. Excellent super-narrow but level ridge high up, also a short exposed traverse to spice it up. Superb day out.

Great route, but felt longer than 200m with 2 good but avoidable turfy pitches up the lower tier.

Brilliant mountaineering route, good belays where you need them, couple of tricky steps to keep the interest, and nice ridge to finish with. Ace.

with Claire
timday 01/Mar/14 AltLd O/S

So much snow. Waded through it on corrie approach (also some massive avalanche debris to cross), and interesting time on the soft and collapsing narrow "arÍte" section after crux. Crux "crack" surprisingly hard; especially when hot aches kick in at crucial point. Descended down N ridge. Good mountain day out.

Great route, mostly grade II with some optional mixed sections which felt hard (but excellent and well protected) for II.

Will Smith 20/Feb/11 Lead O/S

Very nice little ridge, open to lots of variation. In the high wind and low visibility, we skirted a couple of the buttresses but taken direct could give a good long route, possibly at a higher grade. Got the rope out for one pitch up a nice v corner with excellent turf in the back. Total white out on the top and rued my decision not to pack goggles!
