Hard for the grade. Would give it 2 stars. Stomach traverse is hilarious.

Led all pitches, thought the nose was hard for the grade at S. Stuck wire under it as well so i think someone has come off! Scratches present from crampons but tbh it's been ruined by hobnails anyway.

In big boots with bags. Shoed up for the last pitch where we took the hand traverse variation as it was the only rock not covered in snow... Had to aid this anyway due to a blizzard and incoming night Had an epic anyway as is aparently obligatatoury and struggled with the decent In winter conditions. Got back to our bothy at 5am. Someone tried to call mountain rescue for us to bit luckily we managed to explain we were alright before they started up the hill for us

brilliant route, little bit of everything thrown in there, finished by stepping out and round on the nose ...... pretty exposed but once you trust your feet its fine.

Long long day with wild camping kit as well. Led pitches 2, 4 and 6.

Attempted as an epic day out due to the weather, but the first pitch was a bit of a disappointment (a waterfall and really broken). So by the time Pete got to the belay he had lost all psyche, and I was more than happy to bail to a warm fire, bottle of cider and a long game of Risk back at the hut!

tried to do this on an absolutely disgusting day just to get some climbing in, but determined as we were the muddy waterfall that it was forced us off after one pitch, keen to go back as pillar looks ace

I had just finished re-reading Rock Climbing in the Lake District by Owen Glynne Jones. A remarkable route finding masterpiece from the Golden Age.

Carmen led pitches 1 and 3, I led the rest. Seemed harder than the advertised grade (guide says Diff for all but the last pitch, we found it all harder than New West which gets VDiff). Very traditional!

A group ascent with schoolfriend Jim, his dad and Alan H who was writing 'Century on the Crags' at the time - very enjoyable history lesson on this historical climb on a suitably wet and gloomy day
