The crag doesn't get much of a write up in the FRCC summer guidebook, but it's North facing and almost 600m, so we thought we'd take a look.
The rock was covered in dry unconsolidated snow, as was much of the lakes, but the turf was frozen solid and ice dripped out of many of the features.
The line of 'Stand Out'
Enjoying some fantastic frozen turf and great mixed climbing on 'Stand Out''
It was a fantastic 55m single pitch route and we graded it 4/4.
We also tried the obvious line up the centre of the face, but the rock needed more of a blasting to consolidate the snow, which in turn would give better mixed climbing and protection, on a route which is essentially more of a mixed rock line.
