UKC

G/book descriptions often say climb to the left of the prominent overhang for the 50m pitch 3. It actually goes Right of the overhang, continuing up the obvious diedre that heads straight up the buttress. The crux is on that pitch and is some thin moves off a ledge to gain a small niche below the overhang.

Lead 1&2 together then lead 3 as well. Wojciech then fired us up to the top. Good effort of his first route in Scotland

Wow! Something to aspire to leading clean in the future!

Led all the pitches. What a great route. UKC description is odd; just follow the obvious groove all the way.

Yeah babyyyyyyy! Had one of those days when everything feels easy, probably my best winter route so far. Led 1&3. Mad props to adam for smashing the alt lead on his 7th ever winter route! Hard to nail down a particular physical crux, but the super thin step off the second belay with no gear requires a bit of thought. On the third pitch I stopped at a natural belay on the LHS after ~35m with two pitons + good wires, rather than the 50m pitch described in the guidebook. From there it's 55m to the top, with the first 10m being V,6 and the rest easy.

Amazing route, great conditions. Shame about the mini chockstone that exploded out on me. Lead P2 and the end of 3 + 4 as one long 55m pitch. Big congrats to Murray for the awkward step starting P3!

Ice made for a bold lead but steady climbing, I ran P1 & P2 as one. spicy.

p1 and first part of p3 past the horror show step off the belay. Bailed from there due to failing light and incoming weather. Less than ideal conditions with a lot of verglas making protection difficult.

Scary on pitch 3... hard protection-less climbing on less than perfect ice! All the mixed climbing sections were amazing.

After getting blown of Scrabble and being mid day , took the easy option and climbing this quality 3-4 star route. Tough in the conditions but lots of fun.

Brilliant classic! Great climbing, positions and line. Led P2 + 4. Some day!

sasmojo 07/Mar/10 AltLd O/S

Clean onsight for Rob on his pitches, two very good leads. I took one rest on the second pitch leading. A little more ice would have been great.

Best winter climb I've ever been onto so far. Sustained, throughout interesting climbing. First 3 pitches are sustained and similar grades (VII,7 : VII,7 : VI,7 : III) we thought. I'm still to be on a steeper route in winter, exposure was tremendous.
