Hero nevé and good but spaced protection all the way up to the final pitch... which was 80 degrees soft unstable snow, no gear and a big cornice! Spicy times! =o)

Steep bit mostly banked out. Mostly a Grade II Snow plod/swim above. Low III today, although the relentless spindrift kept things interesting. Moved together after two pitches.

Nice climbing, but a lot of fresh snow around. The exit at the top was a little spicy through a manageable cornice.

Great route in good condition with ice & neve all way to summit. Hardest part getting up to & through cornice

Great conditions and an awesome day despite wild weather, topped out to the cairn just before dark. White out conditions also didn't help!

Plan B after Farenhite 451 didn't seem to be there anymore from the road. Thaw more substantial than anticipated so the route is almost broken, but fortunately its still continuous and was prime neve/ice today. Banked out, more like II atm. Direct Finish.

justaddpowder 06/Feb 2nd

On course so dragged up by a guide, lots of powder and ice steps are very short. Right hand finish. Top avoids cornice

Zoomer 06/Feb Lead O/S

First two pitches in good nick, took screws. Last three just steep snow, belays a little difficult to arrange. Pegs are useful. Had the whole Corrie to ourselves, no sign of anyone walking in, on the route or behind us. Not sure what is going on with the ‘claim’ on the same day.

Amazing day, about 7 hours car to car. Ice improved with height, Jonny’s icefall was a fantastic lead since he’s not climbed water ice before. Did in 4 pitches, lead 1 & 4. Nice to top out on the summit, and useful for nav in the whiteout.

Soft snow and semi frozen turf between a couple of ice steps, soloed most of the last pitch (thinking the climb was over...) but needed a rope for a short rock step at the end...

Soft unconsolidated snow between ice steps. Followed the original route via the left branch leading to the snow ridge, narrow gully and the west top of Beinn an Dothaidh.

Met someone who had just soloed it at bottom of Corrie, just said it was a bit thin at bottom. Very spooky snow conditions. Crux pitch was like being waterboarded with hail before suffering the worst hot aches ever at the belay. Soldiered on up the gully and got enveloped by an avalanche released by the roped soloists above. Turf was good enough, snow generally soft or a bit slabby, never been more relieved to top out.

Lots of powder and spindrift meant no ice. Route felt grade 2 in these conditions, but a desperate grade 2 on the first steepening owing to loose powder!!

The icefall variation looked great, but we sadly decided we didn't have enough screws to attempt it. The standard route was still fun, though.

What an epic day, wall to wall sunshine with great views. The gully was in lean conditions with two ice pitchs of mixed quality. The snow was a mix of soft & firm. Managed to find thread belays on 1st 3 belays. The direct finnish looked very thin but it was there. Topped out in the dark.

Today we've gone to North-east corrie de Beinn an dòthaidh to climb taxus 240m III. At the middle of the route we got a bit lost and we've ended climbing something more to the right of ice-fall finish, a ending that doesnt apear on the book, but fore sure someboy has already climbe it. In total 1h 45 min for the 200 and something meters! Quite good conditions until the middle. from there on powder snow an 0 gear. We haven't done piches, we've been moving all together one in the middle of the rope and the other two one in each end.

Pitched the whole climb ( 7 pitches )first ice pitch was covered with 18" of snow- which needed to be cleared before climbing. Mostly steep snow plod after that. Cornice to finnish. Very fine route.

*LOTS* of standing about with a little bit of climbing and a some snow plodding, did the icefall finish

Will Smith 12/Feb/10 AltLd O/S

Foolishly started up this behind about 6 other teams. Lots of falling ice and a lot of time waiting at belays! Without the icefall finish, in these conditions this had one pitch of III followed by a snow plod all the way to the top.

Simon Caldwell 12/Feb/10 Lead

Some good climbing, though would have been rather disjointed (a couple of short ice pitches plus long snow plod) if we hadn't done the icefall finish.
