‘Mixed’ climbing, in every sense of the word. Led p1 crux. I thought the runners weren’t great, but there was a lot of snow about to dig through.

Polish exchange. Really positive climbing, great little traverse at the end of pitch one

Lead middle grade 4 pitch

Chad123 05/Mar/16 AltLd O/S

Brilliant route, great fun, in perfect condition at the moment too, first pitch has plenty of gear and some cool turf corner moves followed by a cool Boulder problem finish, definitely easier to use hands not axes. Second pitch is just as good, and great contrast being mostly fat ice in a wild position. Always a pleasure climbing with the legend that is Bart Shaw! Go do it before it melts! Probably more like VI 6 or VI 7 as others suggest, not sustained enough to be a VII. Watch out for the tricky IV pitch too, made me think!

Cracking route and cracking line! Certainly one of the best that I've done in the Southern Highlands and indeed anywhere!

In superb condition, solid turf, dry rock and fat ice at the top. Stunning day too. Pleasing :-)

Only led the link up pitch in the middle. Awesome route

MSchobitz 27/Feb/16 AltLd O/S

Led P1&3. Great route in fantastic condition, with gear when you start to want some. Ice pitch was still pretty tenuous, but apparently very fat. Probably one of the best routes I've done (summer or winter).

Great line, great route. Did in two pitches, I led the mixed P1 and Mark did the icy P2, that worked fine on 50m ropes starting from a good ledge directly below the corner which we gained from the right. Good conditions with well frozen turf on P1 and just enough climbable ice on P2. 4 hours on the route and 7 hour round trip from the road, sunny on the walk in and out, hardly any wind and just a brief snow shower - perfect! It's not hard for VII, may be only VI 7 but I'll take the grade! Crux traverse was fine, good though slightly directional axes on flatties and the feet are only sketchy for a couple of moves. Well protected as you can get a sling on a spike half way along and it's only a few meters across anyway. P1 below the crux is very turfy, some steep moves (hardest bit is off the deck! probably tech 7) but lots of turf ledges so not tiring, with good though slightly spaced gear (or take bulldogs). P2 had rock gear to start, Mark then got a good 10cm screw, an old peg and some rock gear but pretty spaced and the ice wasn't the best - easy to second but required a careful approach on lead - VI 5 for that pitch would be fair.

Great route, worth all 3 stars. Top is lean just now, felt extremely serious with very little gear past the first 15ft. Small cornice to tunnel through at the top also.

Ramon Marin 17/Jan/16 AltLd O/S

Led pitch 2 and the ice pitch 3, Dougie did a great job on pitch one, specially the dyno at the end of the hand traverse! The ice pitch was fun, ice on the thin side but loads of gear and placements, about Wi3+/4 so fairly straight forward. I placed load of rock gear on the first 3rd of the pitch, and then two stubbies and a bulldog and a crap peg for the rest. If I had 4 stubbies I would have place them all, I'm still learning this Scottish stuff, this was only my 6th route up here in Scotland.

D.Russell 17/Jan/16 AltLd O/S

Led pitch 1. Awesome route. Soft for the grade.

Pina 13/Jan/16 2nd O/S

Fun crux on first pitch. Didn't fancy the look of the thin ice on top pitch so let Brian go for it.

Brian Pollock 13/Jan/16 Lead O/S

Excellent route. Tough conditions. Lots of powder and not all the turf was frozen despite the cold weather. Enough of it was where you needed it but definitely less than ideal and could do with a freeze thaw. Also, be aware there isn't alot of ice on the top pitch, just enough to get by but the top section is very serious at the moment with no gear.

Slipped off on the verglassy hand traverse, found the drier holds in the end. Brilliant climb. Led top two pitches as one.

Tons of snow,lots of spindrift, hard going and a big avalanche over to right, more scary than the climb!

Awesome route. Very contrasting pitches. Outrageous moves on the hand traverse not that hard at all. p2 and p3 ran together. Mostly thinnish but good ice, reasonable pro until the last 8m of the steep bit. Required just to get on with it. Not VII but deserves all the ****
