CarlosTT 30 Mar AltLd O/S Four pitches. I led P1 and P3. Dave P2 and David P4(first winter climbing lead for him!). Hard for the grade P1 with rotten ice, small hooks and not well protected. From here to the top the ice was in good conditions and the climb was really good. No cornice

SJPowderham1 3 Feb Lead rpt Plenty of suffering today! Pissing wet walk in and lots of swimming practice both getting too and on the route. The ice is okay in places but a little bold. Everything buried. Excruciating progress. Topped out at 3pm and decended No4 gully. Got avalanched just for good measure but escaped the flow early. Hugging the gully walls and keeping good separation between us kept Joe well out of it.

Goodstuff 19 Dec, 2018 AltLd rpt With Matt and Steven. I led P1 this time, good ice initially, turning to patchy mixed terrain with minimal protection (felt like a scary V). Rest of the main gully was thin, but still easy bold IV. Probably shouldn't have been on it just yet, but still very enjoyable and with great company.

Abbed with major faff: ropes caught, had to prusik back up to unstuck them, then had to prusik one side of the rope to put enough force on it to come down. Meanwhile route was melting away.

As expected, we were bombarded by ice/snow understandably kicked down by other party. Fortunately, nothing big hit us. The ice was undecided whether it wants to be ice or snow. Protection was poor with about two runners per pitch. Classic line, great day. My first route topping out to Ben's summit plateau. Naving off in a whiteout by 282 bearing was OK.

Moritz L 30 Dec, 2014 AltLd dnf Thick fog and Dave's memory meant we started the climb 30m further right on Number three gully buttress. Dave lead the first pitch. I lead a direct variation to the above of 10m ice in a slightly awkward corner, followed by 50m of snow ploughing. At this point we realised we weren't in the right place but also couldn't figure out where we lost the route. Dave had a go at the corner of Quickstep (V 5) but it was very thin. We abseiled back to the bottom with a bit of faff and our first two abalakov threads

Nick wasnt too happy but you could see he felt the same pain when he topped out. The iron hard neve was really tearing at or legs by this point. Fab weather and conditions though.

Mark Bannan 4 Mar, 2000 AltLd O/S First Ben winter route for both of us. Profound, thought-provoking experience verging on a complete sensory overload. Technically easy for the grade but very serious - belays hard to find and IV,3. Plenty of spindrift. Unfortunately a falling soloist flew past us to his death, which I won't ever forget or won't ever stop hoping this will happen to me.

allmag 15 Feb, 1985 2nd Great route for a quick nip up the Ben. Colin led in good style but had a bit of a contretemps with a Derwent Hill instructor who was belaying a rather slow novice who was chucking down a lot of ice onto our heads: this instructor (best left as anon) wouldn't allow Colin to share the belay - who had run out 50m of rope with no runners so wasn't best pleased! One short, steep ice pitch - but not a grade iv surely?
