A series of mini waterfalls, puntuated by walking. All short pitches (3 or 4m)with reasonable rock belays. Not sure if I've graded it right. One of the pitches is more like 10m. If all pitches are climbed direct the route is more like III, though all difficulties can be avoided at II.

Ticklists: Peak Winter, Scrambles in the Dark Peak (winter).

Some good ice & lots of snow. Don't think ice on the big waterfall pitch was solid enough - did the corner on lhs above 1st waterfall as per 'Scrambles in the Dark Peak' route description.

cragtyke 07/Mar/16 Solo

less than half formed, so did ice/turf variations. deep snow.

Thin, but fun.

Almost all the climable ice has gone or is about to go. Nice day out though!

Starting to thaw quite badly, with running water visible. Most of the top outs have been hacked to bits; but plenty of ice left on the main fall.

Lots of ice but running with water underneath, dry gully below with weird and deadly plate ice waiting to trap your feet in the dry rocks underneath! Used an ice screw, found it harder in my G12's than when I did it in Terminators.

lordyosch 03/Feb/15 2nd O/S

Soloed all the small pitches, roped up for the big one. Night time ascent again, great fun

Terrific route to get done in early April, took the easy line up one of the pitches so probably no more than grade II on that route but still great fun.

Stuart Hurworth 06/Apr/13 Solo O/S

Lots of ice still there on the shaded lower and biggest falls, got my feet wet falling through the pools a couple of times though. Main pitch was steepest ice I've climbed yet!

Luke dealing with his demons after his fall last year. 6th time this season and great conditions, did main pitch twice

Nice to finish it after falling on it last year and stabbing my ice axe into my arm! Good condition.

With Alex and Dave - mostly solo. Best ice i've ever seen on any of it. Bottom pitch with fat ice, second good, third good but a little thin at the top. Made life very easy.

Night ascent main fall ok but not so much lower down

lordyosch 24/Jan/13 2nd O/S

First climb in years. First ever climb at night!

cragtyke 20/Jan/13 Solo

no ice on lower steps, main fall ok but a bit soft in places

cragtyke 13/Dec/12 Solo

Some ice not as much as hoped, mostly verglas so some of the steps very hard

doogstrue 12/Feb/12 Lead O/S

Wasn't expecting any decent ice to be honest, thought we'd probably missed the boat with temps starting to rise but it was in good nick. Met a group coming up led by Matt womersley and stuck with them on the climbs which added to the experience i think. Cheers Matt and the guys.

Missed out pitch 1 - was occupied, providing an excellent excuse. Not really enough snow, but almost enough ice.

Reasonable ice, some water, starting to thaw perhaps. Step 1 & 3 good, step 2 thin.

Nice little trip with some ice newbies and Matt to do the dangerous bit. A couple of 3/4 metre ice sections and a few short icy steps.

Good route, access from torside car park. Two climbing pitches of good water ice with walking inbetween. Ice was great and thick enough for screws. Warmed up in last few days though....

Just two short pitches at the moment, everything else (assuming there is anything else!) is buried in powder. I led the first "pitch", about 4m of easy III. Carmen led the other, longer and easier. Cracking day though, cloud inversion and some deep powder wading across Bleaklow :-)
