/ Where was everyone???
Weather was pretty typical... one minute gorgeous blue skies, the next white out.
I had Coire na Ciste to myself, though I did see someone earlier at the base of Number 5. Chatted to a guy who had just climbed "Good Friday" and said conditions were good and saw someone on Tower Ridge.
Fantastic day, just when I thought it was all over...
Cascade was not there, the white line was broken but Comb Gully Buttress looked good as did Number 2 Gully Buttress.
Don't suppose you noticed if there was any ice on Smiths?
or the start to glovers chimney
Thanks mate. I will wait to see if it fattens up more or some first hand accounts :)

Sorry.. wrong part of the mountain...
We climbed Good Friday Climb on Saturday and found the conditions to be very good with lots of snow and plenty of ice. A few photos at http://www.flickr.com/photos/sctheobald/sets/72157629464349526/
