Start as for Sidewinder, tackle the obvious corner above and continue striaght up, crossing sidewinder and rejoining the final wall of Savage Slit.

With Stephen and Sarah. The traverse on p1 wasn't too bad I though, the corners above felt harder. Did p1 to above the first corner (lots of rope drag, should have stopped below this at the tat belay but would have been very cramped as a three). P2 was short corner followed by wall to a big comfortable belay and P3 was easy ground then the other side of the savage slit crack to the SS belay ledge. Abbed off. I'd give it V 6, initial corner was verglassed. Really enjoyable, adventurous feeling route.

With Robert and Stephen. Beautiful day, powdery. Fell off on traverse to reach corner (annoying!) but managed rest of it ok. Really enjoyed second corner off the belay.

A wee lob leading initial corner made this interesting. Some useful ice around.

Got on this after Deep Throat, so that I could try and lead a tech 6 route. Attempted to lead the corner, but really wasnt up for it. Got benighted after starting the route at 4ish. Topped out at 7ish. Pretty bad hooks up the corner.

I lead P1, Ross, P2. Very few gear, which is hard-gained, due to powder cover. The amount of ice is limited. Traverse to get established to the chimney was the crux with a poor runner. The main chimney section (15m?) had no gear, though there was good gear before and after.

I am a bit puzzled by the previous comment, the line after the corner is very obvious and gives harder climbing. Take a long sling to lasso the chockstone on this pitch or be prepared for a scary run out.

Nice first pitch but not much of a line beyond the corner.
