steveb2006 1 Apr, 2013 AltLd Superb day. Getting a fair bit of sun in the morning now, though ice still very good apart from top ice pillar - looked too rickety - avoided on R. Ice collapsing further right on the face (Wall of Early Morning Light)

GaryK 27 Mar, 2013 AltLd O/S An outstanding route, one of the best I've done in Scotland. Take wires, hexes, turf hooks and at least 10 ice screws.

Captain Solo 27 Mar, 2013 AltLd A superb climb on a spectacular day, surpassing all expectations. First 2 pitches were just eating up the screws. Crux finish was tricky due to ice forming umbrellas under windy conditions.

John Workman 28 Feb, 2010 AltLd Thought we were on Silver Tear but looking at the Guide Book [afterwards!] we did Variations on The Cooler, avoiding the grade 6 bits.

Chad123 27 Feb, 2010 AltLd O/S We started via the Cooler cos it looked fatter but joined this route for the excellent upper icicle which is currently quite full value for the grade. Nice turfy link pitch to get to this as well....perfect choice in the conditions as Beinn Bhan has very little snow at the moment....
