Outstanding climbing. First two pitches went fine with lots of thoughtful climbing. Despite taking a winger on the 3rd pitch, either down to the missing long head tendon or lack of training, I really enjoyed the climbing. Alpine day with blue skies and starry night. Almost perfect.

Third time lucky! Don't think I've ever logged a winter route as "worked" before, but we worked for this on! P1 still felt utterly brutal.

Probably the most effort/time to tick a single scottish winter route. Prior failure 29th Dec 2013, ab'ed from top of P2 knackered in fading light and no head torches.

Failure no 2! Route was plastered in cruddy ice. Andy won the toss for first pitch, took 2 falls and lowered off. I tried and got up it cleanly but spent 3.5hrs on the lead. Andy led P2 clean but by then we were both exhausted, soaked & frozen and it was getting dark. Hopefully third time lucky...

I'll be back...

Ground up. Axe ripped after crux when placing gear and fell to start again.

Support team! I took one fall on the first pitch (desperate flare) and did the rest clean. Something of a steep learning curve. Topped out at 8pm.
