Al_Mac 31 Mar, 2018 Lead Plan B, with the intention to do something else after but never materialised. Short lived and nothing hard, but enjoyable nonetheless. Shame three parties came up and climbed on top of everyone else to build their belays. Southern English uni ethics at their finest. Hopefully the guys we started the first pitch with found the belay jacket they dropped.

stevelismore 16 Apr, 2017 Lead O/S Wasn't really expecting full ice this late in the season but there it was. Wish I'd brought more than 4 ice screws with me but fortunately could find some rock for the belays. The final section getting up the chimney was very thin though so a little scary. Top belay is just a snowy slope so glad I brought a deadman with me. Snow and ice was falling off the routes all around us so didn't fancy chancing the cornice on the top of Tower Gully. Instead just downclimbed back down to Observatory Gully and bum slid most of the way back to CIC hut.

JonLongshanks 14 Jan, 2017 AltLd O/S Good to find something climbable, were going to continue up Good Friday Climb afterwards but didn't seem to have any ice on it and too knackered (after nearly 2 hour slog from CIC swimming up powder covering slippy rocks, torture) Ice wasn't too bad in some places, screws useful. Nice to be back on a winter route :D Mike's first grade III lead. Worst hot aches I've ever had at the top, thought I might black out. Came back down following day due to poor conditions/forecast and both rather ill.

RobScotland 6 Apr, 2008 AltLd O/S A good route. Think it gets a grade III for it's short length relative to other routes on the Ben rather than the steepness of the ground. Spindrift and fresh snowfall moving in with strong winds later on in the day was a shame. Reckon ascending this route then descending down into the gully isn't suitable for beginners since the descent - a traverse then descent - is down a fairly steep snow slope - think if I did it again I'd continue to the top by one of the routes above. No bomb-proof belay at the top of the route either - just doing the best you can on a snow slope - icefall further up though. Looked at point 5 but reckoned it looked climbable but not easily protectable. Big avalanche risk building on Sunday night!
