Lead / Swam P1, Ewan took the main ice pitch direct on good fat ice. Lead P3 finding small ice pitch / step at top. Loads of spindrift.

Stunning blue bird day. Route was in good condition once established in the gully. Ice fall was sopping wet so took the left hand gully variation. Will be back to do the ice pitch.

Cracking day out in the sunshine. With the audible sound of water behind the ice we took the left hand gully variation. Looking forward to the direct route when it's a bit colder.

First on the route and followed by about 5 parties! First pitch was very thin and would be surprised if there is much left tomorrow after all the trafic today, second pitch was in very good nick (considering the rest of the crag!).

WCL course - blue sky’s but again deep powder, walk in already plowed. Fist pitch buried but good second and crux ice pitch. Dragged up once again

Great climb, quite lean and wasn't expecting to do it so didn't have screws.

olekemi 14/Jan/17 AltLd O/S

Just like the other party said - not the plan, but it was there, albeit lean. Screws would have been useful.

euanmci 25/Feb/16 AltLd

Good ice, took line of most resistance up the icefall, so felt hard for the grade. Led pitch 1 and 3. Excellent thread belay at top of pitch 2 if you want to spend 15 mins chipping the ice out of it.

Middle ice pitch open to interestig variation up to tech 5 (i reckon). Top pitch not much to write home about. 451 and Centigrade both done today and described as in good condition.

Loose powder at the bottom, ice mostly good for the middle pitches.

Quite a lot of powder on route making progress hard work at times, nice ice in the middle section, although a bit thin and steep making it tough for the grade.

Main icefall a bit thin and hollow, took a line up the left hand side as this seemed more solid

furbrow 18/Jan/13 AltLd

Conditions were good weatherwise but not otherwise. The ice pitch looked good but on close acquaintance proved to be hollow, loose, detached and generally unclimbable. Forget it until thaw and refreeze.

a bit of a plod low down, but improved at main ice pitch, loads of blue ice, though bits were brittle, wide enough that the route could be easily wandered on to find the best line...turfy finish though...
