That looks really nice. Was there any folk on Good Friday Climb?

In reply to Milesy:

One guy staying in the hut climbed it at the weekend and said this was one route that wasn't in great condition due to quantity of snow making belays difficult. Without knowing where to dig out to get to gear placements.

Took him quite a while to climb.

However a lot of the grade 4 Ice climbs were in grade 3 conditions at the weekend as they were so stepped out.

Green Gulley
Combe Gulley
Right Hand Central

were all in easy condition

Thompsons was a bit harder but Number 3 Gulley Buttress felt more like grade 2.
