Sylvian B 07/Mar AltLd

Rather challenging conditions today: loads of snow and cruddy, hollow ice on second half of P2. Thanks to Marcus for pushing me and for navigating on plateau!!!

tough day on melting cruddy ice with lots of fresh soft snow in places. topped out in a misty white out. Had to nav most of the way down. sylvian led a brave and inspiring 2nd pitch

Great climb, but not exactly in tip-top condition. Thin in places (especially at top lip of main waterfall), but areas will take ice screws.

Just behind Rob and Bruce. Last time I did this was using Vertiges and Grivel pastry cutters! Not very thick and not very dry but it was all there.

Attempted as main ice pitch looked like it would go. First pitch was not really all there, quite hard and ice not thick enough for screws so limited gear. The constriction at the top of the first pitch was not frozen and would have been difficult and wet mixed moves and best left for a better day. Abbed off good pegs and existing tat.

First pitch was in but a little thin in places. Main fall really well formed. Slab in the upper reaches.

HimTiggins 27/Feb/16 Lead O/S

First pitch a little thin at times, but fine with care. Main pitch in great condition. We took a steeper line on the left side as the middle/right looked like it might be a bit hollow. We had thought about combining with b gully chimney but it looked buried!

Ice not in fat condition though 1st 60 m pitch good fun. From the pegs circa 30m having to bridge as ice thin over waterfall. Pitch 2 looked not in so scuttled up the chimney rot the left with the intention of dropping into B Gully Chimney, but this looked a bit banked out, so soloed to the top.

Very little ice on the crux pitch which made it more difficult than it should be.

markfairbank 17/Jan/15 Lead

Very poor choice, all snow and little ice which is exactly how it looked from the bottom. Finished just before dark which made for long day. Adventurous but not one I'd like to repeat too often!

Some ice to be found under heavy-soaky snow. The water and waterfall was never far and a heavy movement would usually break the icing, unleashing the water to wherever you might be. Also had frequent small avalanches. It was just too warm... but otherwise, quite a day.

ice was good where present. a lot of loose unconsolidated snow and the turf not well frozen due to snow insulation. water running under the ice and hollow sections present throughout. upper gully much better with some neve.

Climbed as a 4, Graeme & Sam made it over the crux pitch, but then we all had to back off. Ice good in places but a bit thin in others and fairly fragile. Good route, will be back!

A bit crap really. Mobbed and some of the mobsters were not very competent. Lots od loose ice mind. A long day with a late start and a much later finish.

Lee was good enough to allow me to climb the odd numbered pitches. Although the ice was a bitt cruddy and the climb could do with some more consolidation, it was an excellent day out with only one other group from Aberdeen Uni in the Corrie on B Gully (thank you for breaking trainl).
