3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
3 pitches. A genuine classic of the area. The first pitch follows a slab to a belay under a little overhang. The second pitch is partly hidden from below. Continue up and to the left, following a chimney with some old scrap metal inside. Early in the season it can be a good idea to bring some rock protection on this pitch. Belay below the steep third pitch, which is normally best taken on the right. To reach the best belay a 60m rope is needed. © Rockfax

Brilliant. Chimney pitch is really cool and the top bit is nice and steep. Done in 4 pitches.

Climbed on our last day, best route of the trip. In excellent condition.

Led pitch 1 and 3. 1 was maybe a short wi4 with a sketchy thin ice section before the belay. Gav led pitch 2 over beautiful hanging chandeliers. Last pitch is the hardest and most sustained on similar Icey formations. But felt easy for the grade with good stepped sections for the feet at just the right points. An amazing classic climb in superb condition. Double abseil on bolted anchors.

Lee lead pitches 1 and 3. Great lead by Lee on the 3rd pitch.

Big Lee 07/Feb/15 AltLd O/S

Lead 1st and 3rd pitches. Climbed the final pitch on the left-hand side, which was more like a 4 via this way. Centre of the fall was too wet to consider a more sustained line. Really good route.

Led P1 (cruddy ice covered in snow - unpleasant), followed P2 - a brilliant and varied pitch worth 3 stars by itself, led P3 steep ice with some hooking. An excellent route. Abseiled down as deep snow prevented us from walking out.

Only did first 2 pitches as we thought the conditions weren't great. However when we got to the 2nd belay it looked ok, however was getting dark so absailed off. Great fun though.

Two pitches, bailed as it got dark!

Excellent, worth its stars but nowhere near WI5. Suspect it could be, near the start of the season when it hasn't seen so much traffic.

Getting thinner by the day in the middle section and well beaten out at the top but still a fantastic route.

Did the first and third pitch. Super easy because of the many hook placements, but somewhat sketchy to protect, because of thin hollow ice and many predrilled holes. Still a superb route though.
