Matt Harmon 12 Feb, 2017 Lead O/S Good route, made slow progress under powder and definitely felt IV in poweder conditions. led in 4 pitches from where it splits from spiral gully, short section on P1 as hard as crux. Solid effort by sarah and Zoe on first winter routes, got the full scottish experience with darkness and blizzard on top pitch/walk out
