In reply to andrew bain: Plenty of the white stuff, but its not properly frozen until about 900m up. Sugar-wet below. Teams did Twisting and Boomerang Gullies yesterday as well.

In reply to andrew bain: On Sun I noticed the cornices are quite big on the West side of the corrie, but not many routes round that way...teams on crest route and NC gully I think, also not the most inspiring conditions for Scabbard which looked to be under a lot of wet sugary powder (and not-really-frozen conditions)!

In reply to andrew bain: Nice one. Has the snow firmed up at all?

In reply to soularch:

Yes, very good conditions. First time placements on routes that have had traffic. I expect it's all going to get buried with fresh snow though!

Andrew, I got some pics of you guys on Twisting Grooves. I don't think they will be very good, but i'll mail them to you when I get a chance.
