This is a great area for Scottish style winter climbing. It's quite protected from the wind; we've experienced pleasant climbing days when gusts were forecast to be in the 60mph range. It has a really quick, obvious approach; maybe 30-40 minutes, and it's right above the summer tourist trail. Finally, it has a few easier routes with actual ice, some harder dry tooling trad lines, and potential for more. I suspect early in the fall or later in the spring there may even be some more ice around.
