benclimbing 19 Dec, 2013 AltLd O/S If this route was in Scotland it would mean a number of Scottish 4 star routes would be downgraded to 3 star. It's THAT good! Soft ice, bolted belays, strong line and to top it off some M4 action! We climbed it in lean condition which was incredibly satisfying and a bit uncertain at times. Pitch 1 had some thin ice but some good places for screws. 30 metres and a bit of 80 degrees. Then a bit of a snow plod to pitch 2 which was a narrow gully at about Scottish grade 3. Pitch 3 was toffee ice to a mixed wall which I think is usually ice but this time involved a couple of nuts, a hand jam and some tree root pulling! Pitch 4 started with a bit of technical ice and moved up into a chimney (M4+) which was the crux and the highlight of the route. The final pitch involved easy mixed (including trees!) to the top and the easy walk off. Absolutely superb. My desert island route

Olli-C 21 Feb, 2013 AltLd O/S Only lead the easy snow pitches. Lots of teams on the route, luckily we were in front. The guide behind us said the mixed pitch had more ice on it than he'd ever seen (which explains why there wasn't any real mixed climbing) apparently much easier than normal. Very fun route.
