Sam Shilliday 3 Mar, 2017 AltLd dnf 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.

Misha 11 Feb, 2017 Lead O/S 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...

Al_Mac 28 Feb, 2016 AltLd 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.
