Connorh 8 Mar AltLd O/S Great route, each pitch is pretty interesting. Last pitch felt very hard with the bag on. V,6 is more accurate.

metrorat 8 Mar AltLd O/S Climbed in three pitches. Some ice and useful snow on p1 but snowed-up rock the rest of the way. Felt harder than the given grade in this nick. Bits of unfrozen turf under deep snow on the ledges but solid where required for climbing. Really high quality route with varied, challenging climbing on every pitch. Wedged in the final chimney with what felt like bucket after bucket of spindrift being thrown in my face, had one of those ‘what the f*ck am I doing here’ moments.

The Grist 9 Jan, 2016 Lead dnf Made it to the final chimney then failed perhaps due to lack of ice but probably due to lack of psyche. Managed to traverse into south gully to finish. Enjoyable route.

Andrew Sloan 12 Jan, 2013 AltLd O/S Led first and 3rd pitches. Really nice route with varied and interesting pitches. Slightly spoilt by the loose, rotten chimney at the top, which was pretty tough with a thin veneer of verglas; I thought technical 6, a good lead from steve after he'd stopped whinging.

mikehenesy 17 Dec, 2012 2nd O/S Another fearless lead by Percy, with his dutiful gear collector hooking and torqing his way up after him (me). A bit thin and sugary which made for a good old thrutching for said second and his sac up the final chimney. In summary, bloody marvelous and all without the need for a headtorch-some mistake surely!

010paw 16 Dec, 2012 2nd O/S Stunning climb. A fair plod up to it but well worth it. A good start to my grade 5 career. Pitch 1 and 2 were great, the 3rd pitch up the chimney was absolutely mental, no chance i could have lead that! Was great to get up it though. Top climb with a great team, Andy, Guy and Kenny!!!
