Steve Palmer 7 Dec, 2010 AltLd O/S Climbed in 2 pitches and a snow trudge. I Lead the first pitch. Ice was thin and beginning to melt. From the ground it looked like their would be some rock placements but they did not materialise as rock is so compressed. Long run-outs on bad pro, had to reuse ice screw holes, the best piece was a bulldog half way up. Awkward stances. I felt this was a real challenge and thoroughly enjoyed it. Benighted on walk off.

ajtay 7 Jan, 2010 AltLd I must have spent about £1000 over ten years - I've probably climbed only half a dozen winter routes in that time. Is it worth it? Yes! This was a brilliant day out. Low stress, good ice, good gear, relaxed angle, no real queue, no disagreements, good company from Poppy, and Mark and Ed who we met on route. Much more fun than queueing/fighting for something just cos it gets a cold climbs mention!
