Peter Metcalfe 01/Mar/15 AltLd

Caked in fresh snow from overnight storm. I managed to lose a crampon whilst seconding Katie up the first pitch. She lowered me back down to fetch it - eventually located c.150 vertical metres below. Soloed up to join her in cave, where she was suffering the worst hot aches ever. Pete did second pitch and I the last one. Traverse out from belay was a bit marginal and the ice above wasn't taking ice screws, so ended up effectively soloing that pitch too. A hard-won tick but a great adventure in challenging conditions.

davidbird63 25/Feb/15 AltLd O/S

Lead P1 up to ice cave. How long will those pitons last? The second pitch has a possible belay on the left across a dry slab that involves a horrible traverse. Better with 60m ropes to carry on straight over the ice bulge to a better belay on easier ground at the finish. Down the Ledge Route. My first Scottish IV lead - excluding Tower Ridge (which is different). Oddly after my first Scottish V lead!

Abbed off from the second belay as we'd run out of time. First pitch had some rotten ice. I led the second which was solid apart from the traverse to the belay which was very sketchy (ice had melted off the slab).

Climbed rather out of condition, so the first half of pitch 1 was scratchy, insecure climbing on rock: well done Tom. Next pitch was great, but much thinner than in the photos I've seen: stepping round on to the steep ice wall on poor axes was a bit hairy, but made up for by superb exposure to the (2 rusty pegs + a nut) belay. The final short wall rounded it off nicely: a great salvage of a day so claggy we couldn't find the Comb!

Were were going to rope up, but decided to solo up to where it got hard. It never got hard :-)

Dangerous amounts of snow around so settle for this as its short and accessable. Getting to the foot of the route is hard grind in the snow. The route goes OK but belay off the top down lower part of Ledge Route to get into no. Five gully. The latter avalanches - The slope avalanches as I climb down it - tipped upside down but held on rope above. Thankful we belayed!!

I soloed it after my friend Colin Gourlay had soloed it. He had forgotten his tools, so I lent him mine and we tossed a coin for who would go first. I lost.

Climbed in full conditions! Desperate descent down No.5 gully and lost Bob on the walk out. Gavin & Dudley meanwhile retreated from high on Observatory Ridge and were helicoptered off the ridge on their next attempt, when Dudley fell and was left swinging in space!
