Done in 4 pitches, led 2 & 4. Mike got all the technical stuff. Turf bulletproof where exposed. It seems we did the direct start which explains why it felt a bit tricky! Good climbing. Topped out into the sun and an inversion, pretty cool.

Done just in time before the thaw took hold.really nice final section which weaves a cunning way up the crag. Probably did direct start at IV which explains why it felt a wee bit stiff.

Alternative to taxus as it wasn't in great nick. Turf well frozen, lots of powdery snow, big cornices on the summit area and a huge one at the top of west gully. Not much ice about.

Crap conditions, swimmy powdery unfrozen fear!!! My first graded winter climb :D

Will Smith 21/Feb/15 AltLd O/S

Done in 3 pitches following line of least resistance. All pretty banked out and easier than III in these conditions. Belay at the end of pitch 2 was superb! Big cornice on West Gully but this route avoids it.

Decent nick but ice too thin for screws

great conditions. Taxus looked lean - hard but do-able. Amazing weather

Walked (waded) into corrie with an open mind to find it blootered with snow. Decided on STH as a reasonably safe(er)option. I climbed this last year and thought I would be happy to solo it. Not this time - the whole route was covered in 2ft of snow which was unconsolidated. It made for an interesting climb. The crux traverse was a 70 degree slope. Great fun though. No cornice to worry about unlike West Gully and Taxus. Taxus was loaded with deep snow and the exit at the top looked very steep and almost vertical with a big build up at the notch.

Did variation second pitch, following a corner on the left then avoiding a steep corner (peg at bottom) via a bulge on the left. Same grade I think.

Felt quite tricky due to some dodgy snow and ice, and some turf not frozen, but a good route, with great views.

Bit of a mild day, so turf not always frozen and the snow mostly unconsolidated. Interesting route though. Did the direct start at IV 5. Thanks to Martin for leading.
