Ticklists: 3 star Scottish winter, Chasing the Ephemeral.

Andrew Sloan 10/Feb Lead O/S

Was abbing down route to do Morwind when rope jammed in small malon at half way point. Ended up doing a 50m pitch on one half rope I.e the main pitch, with 2 short screws and 2 bulldogs for pro, to retrieve rope....I wasn't happy, kept clipping into jammed rope hoping it was jammed enough to hold a fall! Quite steep for III.

groovy_nut 23/Jan/10 AltLd O/S

Patrick led the two main pitches. Ice and snow conditions made the route hard and very scary. Screws would never have held a fall and there was a section of vertical rimed up ice at the top of the main gulley - very serious and quite challenging. Route was easily in Grade IV condition, and serious for that.

Pitches fairly short. Good ice gully. Pitch 1 - belayed on existing tat and nut, pitch 3 belayed off good spike just over top of main gully. The final pitch was just a snow field to the cornice at the top, where we found a gap. Access: Down climbed from top (down an easy gully) and traversed to get to base of route. Used cable car and chair lift to get as high as possible to avoid slog.
