Fresh snow overnight meant no track in and no tracks up it. Ice pitch is a little hooked out, but frozen turf and good climbing. Glad to have finally got this done.

Great. Ice in easy nick

Technically not 'onsight' after breaking off a large organ pipe of ice on the crux, splitting my face open, and taking on a screw to wipe the blood off. But continued with style afterwards.

Looking at the photos, we got the crux in pretty lean conditions. Neve was bomber though, which made things easier. Mark got the crux and took a whipper above the fixed hex, which held, thankfully. Great day overall.

Good conditions but the icy corneecis on the thin side - VI today.

Wanted to do this for so long, it didn't disappoint. 6 pitches, led 2, 3 and 5. Wasn't expecting the spicy mixed exit chimney!

An excellent route, a great achievement for its time. Fixed gear on the belays, except for the middle of the traverse. The corner above the crux is interesting, as is the exit chimmney.

Atmospheric walk in, good long climb, ice was easy V, popped off chimney pitch twice - straight from belay, nav ex all the way back in white out conditions. Proper winter day,11hrs all in.

A long time coming for this route but it met and surpassed all expectations. Better weather and conditions than I was anticipating, a **** classic.

Ice corner looked about a III but the cornice blocking the exit chimney was huge so did one pitch then sacked it

climbed to the crux corner but there was very little ice so backed off with one 15 meter abb and then down climbing

As per previous comments, lots of powder on top few pitches made for a fun outing! Last pitch was definitely the technical crux (and required digging!).

Way too much powder. We stuck at it until near the top, then had an interesting time abbing down the central slabs in the dark...

WOW! Walked in after the eclipsing moon on a windless and cloudless day. Crux ice pitch was thin, popped off but got back on and did it second go. Also lead the exit chimney in the dark which seems normal for the long routes on this crag!? Really good steep climbing, good gear. But snow unconsolidated. Clean next time in better conditions. First V lead

Thin ice fall with scary traverse. moonlight walf off stonking day.

Surprisingly tricky route with difficult crux for a V. Decent falback option with very little else in nick.

Neil Adams 18/Dec/10 AltLd

Must have been about plan F for the day, but a good route. I got the steep ice pitch so had a good wee gibber to myself.

Was very thin and powder on ledges. Felt really hard with Direct finish. Finished in the Dark. Excellent now.

Stunning day. Direct start was thin ice but no way VI! Direct finish was well worth it, and probably was worth a grade more than it says in the guide! Great direct route up the face.

Classic climb weaving it's way up an impressive face. Crux pitch is pretty steep and the mixed bits are fun too. Almost consolidated on ledges but a bit more thaw/freeze would make it perfect....

Looked 'in' from a distance but all the ice was rotten & thin. Got two pitches up it but all felt very insecure. While we were deciding whether or not to carry on, another leader overtook and promptly fell off.

Great crux and exit chimney, good situations but the snow and ice on the easy bits was less than perfect. A classic route.
