Karlos 14 Mar Lead rpt Avalanche risk remained, so approached directly under Trident Buttresses to top of Moonlight Buttress. Short exposed traverse across Number 5 into snow bay. Informal contouring pitches round the back of this all of the way to the ridge. Moved together, lots of fresh snow made going slow, especially with increasing height/gradient. Once off ridge, summited, then descended to Corrie Leis. Very wild conditions here, unable to see descent route so started to traverse the ridge looking for better options. More exposed than expected, so had second thoughts and retreated to abseil point. Wind maybe lighter now so could spot initial spike. ~50m abseil to next thread/spike, then full 60m to shallow slope. Walked from here. Good learning experience.

andrew.tyrrell 21 Feb, 2017 AltLd O/S On a winter mountaineering skills course. Very little snow, and very wet. First slab out of No 5 Gully was very sketchy on front points on bare rock (without crampons would have been worse). Easier from there on in. Practiced pitching, moving together, and short-roping. Sheltered from the wind most of the route, but persistent rain all day, even at summit of Carn Dearg. Snow bollard abseil down No 4 Gully for descent.

The climbing felt quite easy with no apparent crux (the traverse on the first ledge was quite technical due to the fresh snow). Somewhere on the midway there are few pinnacles/towers that are dead ends. A decent visibility would definitely make the route finding a lot easier.

timday 8 Mar, 2015 Solo A nice excursion on the one good day of a long weekend that was otherwise three days of pish. Colossal amounts of avalanche debris at base of number 5 gully (unsurprisingly after the preceeding warm spell) but plenty of good snow on route (more than my last winter ascent); initial slab and exit from the "gangway" all well banked out. Soloed with one axe; didn't take any gear and didn't feel any need; Bristol boys had a good time.

Unfortunately didn't get the phenomenal views this route is well known for, but the terrain in itself is truly spectacular. I think this route's grade is taking into account the exposure of the ridge- a sensation we didn't experience due to thick cloud cover- as the technical skills needed are at best low grade II (in the same condition). Will have to try this one again on a clear day!

Moved together all the way, where I belayed the second in one rocky section of 3 metres, which we found out immediately afterwards to be avoidable. Snow was so deep, we could practically follow the staircase pretty much all the way -- it was much easier than 2 months ago; definite grade I in today's condition. The weather was superb!

SuperstarDJ 26 Aug, 2006 Lead O/S Done as a scramble in the wet, rather than a 'route'. A slippy slab, just after the rightward exit from No.5 Gully did mean I needed to get the rope out for some of the party of 10. 2 people didn't fancy it and headed back to the pub, leaving us in the wet. Too cloudy to get the benefit of the exposure but a great route up the Ben and it must be stunning if you can see anything!
