Optional ice pitches in the gully just left of the buttress at the start followed by pleasant mixed climbing.

Nice Lead! phil. First couple of pitches were very tricky, not much consolidated snow to climb on...

Hard for the grade and not well protected in current conditions. Had intended to climb Western Rib, but think we ended up on this instead.

We went wildly wrong and ended up on the wrong route. Missed the last gondola down. Nooooo!

Nice route, plenty of interesting steps. Turf pretty frozen on most of the route

Some tricky route finding and some spicy moves. III (4) would be more of an appropriate grade.

Mr Fuller 07/Feb/15 AltLd O/S

Great and long route. Soloed first pitch then 7 pitches before moving together. I led round slab - hard rockover (4) round LHS of slab then steep gully to escape left before rejoining ridge direct. Ran like mad to catch the last bubble.

Zoomer 22/Jan/15 AltLd O/S

Teaching day on WIT, heavy going approach. Excellent turf and patches of good ice. Led 2 long grade III pitches before swapping over. Cornered ourselves in an overhanging groove (V). Rapped of at 1600, missed the gondola, walked all the way down in darkness, bogs, knee deep powder and river crossings...type 2 fun.

Enjoyable sustained route with very hard pitch up the slab. Good frozen turf but fresh powder with no or little neve made it interesting in places!

Took an absorbing direct line on the slab. Good route.

Fiona Reid 01/Mar/14 AltLd O/S

Very good value for the grade. Soloed the initial section then 5 pitches to the end of the difficulties, led even ones. Mike's variation on pitch 3 was really hard to second. Turf well frozen.

Did the whole of the ridge proper moving together in a three. Poor conditions too warm and started raining with heavy wind half way up, which made it feel a little serious. Kinda spicy pitch on left of slab. Enjoyed bits of it despite hideous conditions.

With +20kg rucksacks! Great climb, hard pitch after reaching base of triangular slab, perhaps took a difficult line..

Moonstone Hippy 17/Dec/11 AltLd dnf

Difficult snow conditions making for a slow approach and some gnarly climbing. Ab'd off from half way up the slabs.

Move together for much of it, although pitched a pretty technical pitch, just left of the obvious slab. Great route, no stars in new Cicerone guide!

Moved together lower section, 2 pitches then soloed top section. Great bumslide down the ski run to finish.
