RangerMcFreindly 1 Feb 2nd O/S Great first experience at Scottish mixed climbing. Big thanks to Jack who took us up. Start of the day I seemed to get an uncharacteristic Scottish winter experience and walked up in perfect clear conditions! Dry and warm got to the crag and cracked and got to experience a small amount of what Scotland can throw at you hot aches, spin drift, uphill snowing? First root down f-in psyched for the next!

Mr Fuller 9 Mar, 2018 AltLd O/S First grade V and somehow ended up leading the crux pitch. Absolutely plastered in rime and a lot of digging required. Alpine-style top section a nice contrast to the technical lower pitches. Ace route. A green cam got stuck on the crux pitch - would be great if someone got it out and returned it!

Chrismith 4 Feb, 2018 AltLd O/S Great route with lots of interesting climbing. P1 had little useful ice and was pretty bold and run out but enough wee ledges for the feet on the slab. Ice and neve improved considerably after and P2 up through the crux was excellent climbing that just flowed - with slightly better gear this time. Wandered up to the summit after as weather was pretty much as perfect as it gets, didn't want to come down!

Al_Mac 10 Dec, 2017 AltLd O/S Brilliant route on a stunning December day. Lots of powder and any turf under more than 3" snow on the first pitch turned out to be distinctly unfrozen, despite other reports to the contrary. Sadly this was discovered after committing to a few moves but for the rest of it, it was avoidable. Further up the cliff there was less snow cover and the turf was bomber.

Just Will 11 Feb, 2017 AltLd O/S A fashionably late night-time ascent having got the Sleeper up that morning. Started the route at the leisurely time 3:30pm as everyone else was heading down for the day - apart from a team high above us whose upward progress was probably best measured in generations. I lead the approach and corner pitch - grimly gyrating my way up the awkward offwidth chimney like an older man trying to cling on to and keep pace with his younger, more energetic mistress. Sideways axe placements proved key to the lumbering, grinding progress made with every bit as much grace as a corpse in a riptide. Still, at least I didn't fall out like Joe managed, or chicken out and go around it like Alfie ;) Murray rolled back the years, balancing his way up the outside of the chimney in typically infuriatingly good style - no doubt easier to motivate yourself for when you have a top rope. Murray lucked out and got the lead for the next couple of pitches, which were pretty hooky and much more enjoyable, even with headtorches. I then lead off the unconsolidated fitness terrain up to the top. We then made the strategic blunder of abseiling into the gully over the other side rather than heading up the ridge to the top. This lead to further abseils over steeper terrain and the odd bit of windslab - but still safe as houses under the full moon.

Second pitch was good out of the sentry box, with the hero hooks up the right hand crack superb fun with solid gear. Easy ground above would be better under neve. Turf was okay where required.

Misha 13 Dec, 2015 AltLd O/S We figured this would be feasible as a shortish hit for Sunday and fortunately we were proved right - started from the road at 8am and back at 3.45pm! Nice day as well - dry, clear and no wind. There was already a party on the route but they were moving quickly. Mark did the thrutchfest P1, which was bold and tricky on the crux wide crack. I led the rest of the difficulties in one long pitch (can be split into two). It looked deceptively easy! The crux was actually on the least steep section at the top, torquing with poor feet. Solid at the grade. Mark did the next pitch (sections of II/III) and I finished up the atmospheric grade I gully. We abbed off a block next to the top of the gully into Boomerang gully, walked down a bit and did a second an off a block over a steep section, which got us down to a gentle slope. 2.5hrs from the road to starting the route (1.20 to the bottom of the corrie - no time wasted), 3.45 for the route and 1.30 from topping out back to the road (walking poles essential for speed on the icy path). Felt great to get back fairly early for a change!
