Fossil 8 Mar AltLd O/S Both Jonty’s and my first IV, 5 route. He tackled the first crux and I took the second. The ice was a little thin and quite drippy but we had nigh on glorious weather. Jonty also thoroughly enjoyed the rope faff generated by my insistence on using my new 70m halfs. So much so that has declared he will never touch them again.

masa-alpin 9 Feb, 2019 AltLd dog In challenging stormy conditions (50-70mph wind forecast with the temperature floating around the freezing point). I lead P1 and P3. P1 had good ice and only grade III, P2 being IV, 5, and P3 being V, 6, in today's conditions, because of powdery snow on top of a thin layer of snow-ice; you can not easily scrape the snow, yet ice was useless in most parts. I took a fall in P2 in seconding, as my goggles misted up so badly and I could see almost nothing…

stratandrew 19 Jan, 2018 - The guidebook says it is graded for good ice. Today there was little ice and even less neve. It looked climbable but maybe this was early season optimism. Not only did the Powdwr obscure the hooks and mean digging for gear but it was loose and unhelpful for axes. We climbed two increasingly sketchy pitches culminating in a finale of uber sketchiness to reach the overhanging chockstone. Jim seconded it and on arrival at the belay declared I was a psycho! We abbed off rather than try and outflank the chock on unconsolidated powder. Type 2 fun to be sure.

rossn ??, 2003 Lead This turned out to be a great day and a route we hadnt planned. Turned up in the corrie and by luch the conditions looked pretty good. There was nobody near Pateys so we headed straight for it. crux pitch is quite steep but I found a useful peg on the right wall and the cave a the top provides an excellent belay. Top route.
