Straightforward gully climb with good scenery and a couple of steps. finished up towards the tower on the left for added interest.

Top half was firm

James Beaumont 13/Jan/16 Solo rpt

wasn't properly in condition, lots of deep snow made it sketchy soloing, probably an avalanche risk

Terrible. Waist deep powder in some parts, turf only frozen at very top. Wouldn't bother if you're thinking about it, needs a good few freeze/thaw cycles

A very thin line, but some great ice in the steps. Certainly harder than II in the conditions, and if you went direct.

beths second winter climb to date she did well with walking axes and a bad shoulder very windy at times lots of flying debris beth took one clean on the nose still no need for expensive plastic surgery and of course no sun today as the met office had suggested . descent via gribin ridge.
