Steven Andrews 31 Mar, 2018 - Climbed the left variant up to a huge ice umbrella and then up a further step before cutting across for the top chimney pitch of poachers. Lovely climb.

Robertgiddy 2 Mar, 2018 Lead Top chimney thin, but you could traverse to poachers if needed. Dropped (well, dislodged by squeezing) a screw, might not be buried cos it's been very dry. If you find it give us a email.

masa-alpin 5 Mar, 2016 AltLd O/S Hamish lead P1 (skipping the very first 10m, as we approached by abseiling) and I did P2. The P2 crux was easier than Porcher's. But the spindrift was horrendous. As it seemed to never cease, I had to climb blind (with no goggles on) at the worst part, which was fortunately after the crux.

GaryK 24 Mar, 2013 AltLd O/S Quite a lot of rotten snow on the easier angled ice at the moment, which makes pulling over the steep sections harder. If it hasn't been climbed for a while then you'll have to do a lot of clearing. Some of the ice is dinner plating, and large pieces can come off. Definately belay out of the fall line. Good ice screw placements after the surface crud is cleared.

Captain Solo 24 Mar, 2013 AltLd Although not looking particularly fat from a distance was adequately iced, excellent climbing made slightly easier by a previous ascent. A stunning location to climb. This time last year I was climbing at Inverpolly without a T-shirt!
