260m, 5 pitches. (NOTE: Route may vary depending on conditions!)

P1: Ascend the steepening icy ramp for 40 meters to a 80 degree six meter icewall. Scoot over this and left to belay 10 meters back on wires and a rusty peg at the lower and smaller of two roofs (60m).

P2: Traverse right from belay and attack a short steep bulge to gain a 45 degree snow slope. move up this for 30 meters or so to another wire belay at the back of the scoop (50m).

P3/4/5: Move up and left to the foot of a really nice 60/70 ramp. Belay at the top (50m... ish), or continue round the corner where you might be able to see the summit cornice and up the first snow field passing small buttress on right (50m), and then up to the second snow slope to the top (50m).

Ticklists: Cold Climbs, 3 star Scottish winter, Mid-Grade Scottish Winter, Scottish Winter IV-VI.

Another epic day, approached on skis which turned out to be a bad idea. Ditched them half way. Not on as good as condition as hoped, first pitch was good by the rest just powder with no gear. Another long awaited route climbed!

In 5 pitches, lead 2, 3 and 5. First pitch is a cracker!

Robertgiddy 14/Mar/15 Lead

Great route! Climbed the first corner in one pitch, this however involved 5m of moving together to reach the belay. This was with 50m ropes so there must be some depth of snow at the bottom - we were expecting the corner to be 90m according to our guide. The cornice was easy.

Just did first pitch, managed the LHS cleanly upto the belay. Had to retreat due to falling Ice and Rock. The top-roped harder RHS (big icicle) Jon managed on 2nd attempt in 'splashy conditions' I managed 2 or 3 steps up before convincing myself I'd die of snappy-iceicle death.
