nisbetag 26 Dec, 2018 Solo Did this route in very poor condition - ice was thin and weak (rendering the ice axe redundant), snow capped tops thawing leading to rock fall from the gully. In hindsight, we should have climbed Easy Gully (I).

Cuillin Calling 16 Feb, 2017 Lead Wet and mild, things thawing. Lowest part bare, rest had fair cover of soft snow. Small waterfall at half height with sketchy rock step, would need rope now or retreat.

lucyvass 28 Dec, 2016 Solo Very wet and warm, varied conditions all the way up. Easy snow plod apart from 1 move which had little snow on it. Cornice was easily avoidable to the right.

John Naish 28 Dec, 2016 Solo O/S Fantastic route, however the snow worsened as we ascended. Signs of a recent avalanche and cracks forming in various places suggesting avalanches are to be expected. Top varied from completely cleared of snow to half a foot.

PEccleston ??, 2016 Solo Great route, and made for a good little adventure Did unroped in a group of 6, conditions : snow has somewhat consolidated in parts, with v small amounts of ice on the route, showed signs of recent avalanches, and looked particularly avalanche prone, with cracks forming in the top snow pack and big build ups looking ready to go. Given the imminent warm weather probably best avoided
