I led the first and last pitch Andrew got the steeper ice in the middle. Nice climb until the Cornice, spent some time hacking at it, eventialy tried to swim through it but slipped out and fell. I'd put in every screw I had into the crappy snow ice under the cornice just and amasingly one held whilst 3 ripped. Gave up and abbed off after that followed by a long walk out.

A great climb. Traversed in from the climbers col after traversing round from the gondala and approaching up the ridge to get a good look at the cornices. First pitch was a snow slope and the second had a great ice pitch. Final pitch was up the snow slope to the cornice that was easy passable by following the snow arête to the top.

climbed in typical scottish winter conditions, gully was banked out with snow, nice steep ice pitch above half way, not much in the way of protection. no problems at the cornice

Last minute decision because of queue's on other routes. Lead all three pitches. Ice on the first, then well banked out up to the cornice. Cornice was 'exciting'!

The use of a very kind man's rope to get through the cornice was very much appreciated.

A very thin ascent, with avalanche debris at the the bottom, verglas and water ice in the steep mid section and near vertical snow at the top to the cornice. Probably in these conditions with little snow, closer to a III as nothing banked out. Good technical and balancey climbing in the narrower mid section. Great first route of the winter.

PeteH 23/Jan/10 2nd O/S

Good consolidated snow on an icy base. Rock gear was tricky to dig out for the leader, first belay was on two ice screws. Significant cornicing at the top.

DaveLeonard 23/Jan/10 Lead O/S

Nice snow, rock heavily rimed making finding gear/belays interesting. Pleasant cornice swimming.

3 pitches. Clagged in and thawing conditions. Was actually raining. Could see that snow was slipping away from the rock. Griff led 1st pitch. A large rock came unstuck at the belay (scary moment #1). Griff managed to stop it falling until it was safe to let it go. Novice led 2nd pitch. I led final pitch up over cornice. very dangerous. Snow was sugary and cornice had receeded leaving a crevasse full of wet snow underneath. Managed to plant my axes on summit and used my arms to pull up so as not to put full weight on crap snow ledge. Threw legs over to safety. Snow in crevasse was collapsing when seconds stood on it. Lesson learned: should not have climbed on an east facing slope in thawing conditions.
