MrRiley 5 Aug, 2018 Lead O/S Climbing in Garbh Coire is always a great day out, but overall pretty disappointed in the route - it's very vegetated, loose and lacking line. On top of that, the top third of the pitch 1 groove (which you can't properly see into from the bottom) was sopping, with mud and grass in the corner and green slime on the slab. I started to go for it but there didn't appear to be any gear, so down-climbed and lowered off. We then did the winter start. Seeking out better rock I climbed a corner on the edge of the west face (right of the shoulder) and went direct up the inset corner by the first tower (rather than traverse left into the splintered chimney). The highlight was Bell's variation on the second tower, which is excellent. Still glad I did the route because now i'm certain it's worth going in for in winter!

Sloth Chops 7 Jul, 2018 AltLd O/S First MS pitch was a sandbag for the grade as we're many of the other supposedly V Diff pitches. Terrific exposure in the final two pitches. I lead pitch 1 and Gavin lead the others

QuicNic 13 Aug, 2016 AltLd O/S first pitch wet and difficult. Rest was damp and slippy in places but OK. Bells variation on 2nd tower was exhilarating stepping into the wind. Windy and occasional drizzle showers.

CurlyStevo ?Sep, 2009 AltLd Hmmm can't really claim the route, we did the HS pitch and then up to the chimney, we missed this accidentally and ended up traversing in to cummington Crofton and finishing up this with Bells variation, probably harder than Mitre Ridge though! A worthwhile combination of pitches!
