At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving. Please proceed with caution though.

tskelhon 23 Jan, 2013 AltLd O/S Actually quite easy! Ice and turf in great nick - awesome first route at the Black ladders. For value added finish, take chimney system on the left for the final pitch rather than the gully!

geoff b 31 Jan, 2010 AltLd O/S Grim weather with huge amounts of spindrift, especially on P1. I seem to remember someone posting a video on YouTube of someone else on the Ladders that day getting absolutely nailed by a spindrift avalanche. Great climbing, sustained through the pitches, generally well protected. A number of choices on the last hard pitch if I remember correctly.
