took right hand variant at small amphitheatre then a pretty direct line straight up at about IV. Lots of unconsolidated snow on slabs in the upper section. A long way from top of guidebook pitches to summit!

A great route; long (!) and kept on going when you thought the summit must be near! The exit from the amphitheatre was our crux (though we had 3 really interesting and enjoyable technical steps in the 1st two pitches). Just doable (in terms of safe consolidation) when we did it. The snow surface seemed solid but wasn't frozen to its base so was liable to collapse to the gully base and occasionally break off in a big chunk.

The route was in pretty poor shape. Unconsolidated snow and certainly no worthy ice meant a lack of protection for some parts. Would be a great route in full condition. It just kept on going!

In very poor condition with unconsolidated snow and ice. Very tenuous and insecure, felt like V,6 today. Took right exit from amphitheatre although the ice smear on the left would probably have been climbable albeit a bit thin. Abseiled off after the main difficulties from 150m up due to impending darkness.

A bit thin on ice, and I thought the gear was somewhat uninspiring on the first two pitches.

Nice bonus pitch at top. Cracking day with good variety of climbing.

Stunning day of Alpine conditions in Glencoe, but found the climb itself underwhelming. Perhaps the stars are for the historical significance.

Full on mountain day, 6 hrs roped up plus a decent yomp. Brilliant varied route, good ice most of the way. Blue skies too!!

Brilliant esoteric climbing in another of Glencoe's atmospheric gullies. Found a great pitch of grade 4 ice towards the top too.

Condition: "Interesting". Vairable quality ice and neve, and three short but quite pokey mixed sections. Since it was snowing most of the day, the gullies and slopes at the top had lots of unconsolidated snow. A full-on winter's outing.

Stuart Johnston 01/Apr/13 AltLd O/S

Great route. First pitch was quite dry at the crux and so awkward to get over the buldge. The rest was pretty straight forward, but surprisingly long!

Steve led 1st pitch, lean and melting. I was 15m up 2nd pitch when steve hit by falling rock. As he was profusely bleeding from a cut to his forehead we abseilled off and headed to A and E. Will come back and do it when in full winter condition as looks like a very good route.

A bit soft but well banked out and still plenty of ice. Wall pitch well iced, continued on up to summit, a good route but not ****.

up to the ampitheatre. Lean conditions around first step, would be easier if banked out
