Malcolm Bass 29 Jan, 2017 AltLd O/S By the FWA finish. Optimal conditions with white walls and clear cracks. From the junction with Thompson's route upwards there is currently a lot of very loose rock.

Paul Figg 29 Jan, 2017 AltLd O/S Dropped an axe from the top of first pitch so the leader had to lower an axe back down each pitch for the 2nd's to use. Great day out.

philhilo 9 Jan, 2016 AltLd dog Well that was hard. Led 1st pitch, slabby corner.....no gear but ok. Followed next two. Steep short and hooky for p2. P3 in the dark in a maelstrom of spindrift. Challenging, fell off and got blown off. Awesome lead from Misha.

Misha 9 Jan, 2016 AltLd O/S Fantastic! Well rimed and snowed up, cracks generally not iced up but wintery enough to make cams pretty useless - got two decent ones in the whole route. Take lots of small to medium wires and extenders as even in pretty wintery conditions there's generally a lot of gear to be had. Led P2 and 3, as well as the easy rightwards finish.

Alasdair Fulton 21 Nov, 2015 AltLd dog Chuffed:Annoyed ratio middling. Chuffed to have got on this with Andy and James and felt really solid on the 3rd pitch. Annoyed to have taken a fall when my top axe ripped taking out the bottom axe with it. Was feeling quite relaxed at the point it ripped. Dammit! Great route.

GraMc 2 Dec, 2012 AltLd where to start?, I mistakenly climbed most of pitch 2 of Boswells new route before a very scary traverse committed a long way above marginal gear got us back on route, The rest of the route was fantastic, annoyingly I took a small fall at the start of pitch 4. Brillant adventure!

jameshiggins 30 Jan, 2011 AltLd Full winter experience today - should have left the cams at home! I'd heard that the norm in winter is to split summer pitch two, taking a stance at the base of the corner. So we did. I linked the second half of summer pitch 2 and summer pitch 3, unfortunately taking 3 falls.

Neil Adams 30 Jan, 2011 AltLd O/S We wouldn't win any prizes for style but we got up it! I led the first hard pitch then Jim accidentally ignored the tat & stance and ran the next 2 together making a sustained 30m tech 8 monster! For the easy final pitch, I think I made the opposite mistake and took the groove above the obvious tat & belay when we should have been further left, but the meat of the route is past by that point. Proper winter conditions - spindrift, icy cracks in places, good coating of hoar, rime & snow. Felt like a big day!
