vytas 19/Jan 2nd dnf

First pitch was good fun and seemed to be mostly in reasonable conditions, some frozen turf. We were hoping they would improve as we climbed higher, but the ledge bits of the second pitch (soon after the small second chimney) were in very poor conditions (turf was not frozen). Finished via (NC?) gully on the right, which was in horrible conditions.

This was my first winter route 5 years ago! (13/11/13). Had to bail 2 pitches up due to conditions on that occasion, log here (for historical reasons!): "First winter route. Got 2 pitches up but had to bail because of rain + lack of ice. Great day though! Must return." Well, return I did (eventually). First and probably only winter route this season, due to moving to Auckland in January. Delighted to have my last winter route in Scotland for a while be the first one I ever tried. Led in 3 pitches, turf mostly good and the odd occasional useful bit of snow amongst all the powder. A very good route! Upper pitch was a little chossy still, will require a bit of thaw/freeze to stick everything together. Weather better than expected too!

Nice climb for an early season route, a bit powdery in places but good hooks throughout lead to an enjoyable and easy time. Pitch 1 was a great start with quality declining from then onwards but still great fun

P1,2 & 4. Good conditions split the 1 st pitch in 2 as good lots of rope drag. Think it went to direct on second pitch as joined the crest just in front of the tower, maybe more like IV 5? Good fun

Alex led the hard first chimney, I carried on up a short second chimney to the ridge, behind the tower and up the narrow gully behind it for a comfortable a cheval belay stance. Karin led an airy pitch, then Alex led to the top. A really fantastic route.

Alexandre Buisse 04/Apr/10 AltLd O/S

Led the first and last pitch. The first one had unfrozen turf and no ice in the cracks, felt sustained and a bit desperate toward the top (though it might have been possible to traverse out of the chimney early in the pitch). The rest was varied, exposed and fun. Overall, a great route!

Thin first pitch - a bit damp. Good climbing the rest of the way.

Poor condition of the first pitch made it very hard, but after that a great climb.

An early season ascent, in reasonable nick, turf froze where you needed it,otherwise lots of snow on rock.

Pretty suspect conditions. The first pitch is very loose is not all frozen. Didn't put crampons on until the third pitch.

Did Direct Start, to bypass parties in chimney, but only decided we'd better gear up once half way up it! True Team Reckless style. My first experience of placements in frozen turf. Soft snow falling steadily for most of the day, so got lost in our own little world. Fine climbing. Led Ps 1&3.
