Perfect weather. Enough snow, which was in good nick, man trap style crux entertaining. Icefall start was exposed and entertaining.

Stunning day with an amazing view. Alt lead and did 1st pitch which was intreasting route finding and the crux corner which felt a little harder than it looked with all snow and ice on it. 3 and half hour walk and 2 or so hour walk back to car. Long but brilliant 14 hour day.

Plan B, since plan A wasn't properly frozen. Led p1+2. First time on Beinn Eighe. Lives up to the hype.

Led first pitch and took a bit long about it. Not really in great condition. Ended up backing off because not convinced we could finish the rest of the route before dark. Still not completely sure we were on the right line.

Nice day and very little powder for the majority of the walk in. Got up to the climb after not too long and had a bit of debate about which line to take. P1 took us over 3 hours so we decided to back off and finished the day with a walk up Beinn Eighe.

Lovely hooks brought an improbable-looking crux pitch into the range of my meagre talents. Superb climb.

First grade IV I've been on, and first proper pitch of tech 5. What a belter! Had to dig deep to get this one clean. And that walk in...

Consolation Route (as per guide book description!) after not finding anything in condition on the Easter Rampart or Far East Wall. After getting to the car park at 2am and sleeping in the car (Alex) and tent (me), had a late start, leaving at 8.45am. Steep slog to the ridge struggling to keep to the indistinct path but at least the weather was great and we were in the sun. Spent an hour and a half mooching around the crag trying to decide what to do before settling on East Buttress as the only feasible option given the time. Started at 1.15 and took 3 hours for the route - nice to move quickly for a change! Three 40/45m pitches got us to a final pitch of easy ground. I led P1&3. Thought crux corner on P3 had a couple of tech 6 moves. Back at the road at 6.30pm. Almost a 10 hour round trip with 3 hours of climbing and the rest walking or faffing! Stunning location though...

alexm198 11/Feb/17 AltLd O/S

Settled for this one as the steeper lines were bone dry. Fun route - good gear and straightforward climbing. Led P2 and 4.

Stunning early walk in under the stars, flat calm and clear. Fairly deep post holing from the quarry lip to the base of the buttress. Col led pitches 1 & 4, I took 2 & 3. A fantastic route, with an amazing location and the best belay views I've yet experienced. A bit of powder on the route but nothing too bad and plentiful gear was easy to find.

Traversing the swamp above the first tier proved to be the crux. Route was great, really positive climbing and the rock swallows gear.

Powdery snow, so easy to clear for gear and find footholds. Lovely route, the chimney and corner halfway up were the highlights.

Clear day bit of wind. Snow covered rock. Good practice for me on mixed. Shows I was trying.

Slowed down by deep snow and unexpected traffic on route. We were ready to start the first pitch of the buttress proper just before 4pm, decided to back off rather than attempt crux final pitch in the dark. Dangerous snow conditions on the traverse back down.

A fine climb! exciting traverse to the base of the route, some ambiguity over the exact line on the first pitch, 4 pitches with some good technical climbing. The shattered chimney and steep groove after were the highlights!

A great day on a route I've wanted to do for a while. Good useful snow on the ledges and nice weather. You can't go wrong in Torridon, now for the other two...

Took a fair while to walk in through fresh snow in the corie and along the broad terrace. Spent 3 hours digging out the first two pitches before deciding to bail.
