Good route in amazing scenery, reasonable conditions but most turf under the snow wasn't frozen yet, exposed stuff was good. The beginnings of ice appearing in Coire na Poite - along with some sizable looking cornices for this early in the year!

Made the most of the poor conditions, moved together for a lot of it, took some funky lines to add some spice.

Bunch from EUMC. Stunning corries, really pleasant and interesting route. Not loads of snow or that well frozen in places! Large and very wobbly block perched near top on final stretch of ascent.

Very soft where it had caught the sun at the top - made it rather exciting... Alone on the hill, stunning views.

A fantastic day out, odd conditions with soft snow on the north of the ridge and bear, dry frozen turf on the south side. Everyone climbed with a single axe but no crampons due to the lack of snow. The final wall felt imposing but with some careful route finding we made it up.

Went with the expectation of a route similar to aonach eagach, totally different. Climbed it in 6 pitches with loads of frozen turf, interesting final pitch with a small cornice to get over. Brilliant route!

Great route on a perfect day. Couple of sections challenging for the grade including exit which was a little corniced on the day !

Did part of this as plan B after not finding much ice about. Got fed up of wind part way up and bailed into Coire na Feola

Lovely day, part soloed, part moved together, part pitched on the head wall. Head wall is rapidly losing turf but good fun and impressive looking. Stunning views all around.

7 of us moving with three ropes. Fantastic route in a beautiful setting. Weather and visibility was great too. A couple of tricky sections on the final headwall that I think are high in the grade.

Turf half-frozen and plenty of powder but what a great ridge! Approach to the steep headwall took longer than expected.

Done in four pitches with III, 4 finish. Moved together with me in front over the approach sections, with Martin leading all pitches on the buttress. Soft snow but good frozen turf. Outstanding alpine day.

Followed on from North gully. A perfect clear cold winters day.The summit cliff looked incredibly steep and intimidating from a distance but was actually ok to solo.
