300m. The most obvious gully in the middle of the cliff has several ice pitches in the bottom half. The stars are for lean icy conditions when the route can be excellent. A 3*** day out in the right conditions.

Robin Woodward 10 Mar, 2017 Lead O/S Decent snow up the initial gully but the first 2 ice pitches weren't there any longer requiring some slightly suspect diversions, however the final Grade IV left hand variant Ice pitch was still in and worth the slog in! Great ice for climbing if a little thin in places. 2 solid screws and 5 inch in tie-offs for 50m of climbing made it a bit spicier than it should have been. Lovely alpine feel above this and on the summit with as many glissades as we could find in our descent down the ridge. A great day snatched before the thaw hit properly.

I took a fall at the no-fall zone, as I hadn't placed any screw on the fragile pillar, and was only saved by a lanyard… It was more like VI, 5 on this day's condition. But, still… I paid the toll of focusing only mixed climbing in the last couple of years.

Mr. K 27 Feb, 2016 AltLd O/S 300m of ice climbing under blue skies with no wind, wearing t shirts and sunglasses! An amazing experience, this route deserves ***. We did five roped pitches and soloed the final pitch to the top, bypassing a small icefall. I lead pitch 1 & 3, Masa lead 2 & 4 and Elinor did her first Winter lead on pitch 5. For pitch 4 we took the right-hand branch and climbed a steep, slender ice pitch at a bold grade V. The rest of the route felt fair at III, plenty of easy ground between steeper ice sections. Another team that took the left-hand branch having backed off the thin ice pillar found a brilliant section of ice tucked away out of sight. I'd recommend going left at the top.

MrRiley 17 Jan, 2014 AltLd O/S Stunning weather despite the forecast and nice to find this in reasonable nick. First ice pitch thin but entertaining, second hollow and scary, third fat and blue. A bit too much easy ground to really justify lots of stars though!

size9hex 14 Feb, 2011 Solo O/S Not the best conditions, but a good day on a safe-ish route when the northern corries were avalancing. Avoided the lower icefall (wasn't there), swam up deep snow, and climbed a good ice chimney near the top. Probably worth grade II in this condition.

freemanTom 14 Feb, 2011 Solo Jedi Solo. Rubbish snow and ice conditions apart from short icy groove on the righthand gully near the top. Avoided early ice pitch as looking really thin. Route we swam up worth about II.

Captain Solo 12 Feb, 2011 Solo Still hanging in there despite sun starting to hit it. Turned into a beautiful day and apart from a few walkers heading for Braeriach not another soul around. Can only imagine the carnage going on that is Sneachda on a Saturday.
