There is a lot of unstable slab about at the moment with a possible dangerous faceted layer within. We found some small sections of even a few metres width that were of concern, to be avoided. There was great deal of redistribution of snow today. Take care.
It's pretty steep but it's not grade V regardless of how close it is (or not) to the road.
I'd agree with that.
We were the group on it yesterday, in good condition, placed 3 screws fine and it has had hardly any traffic. IV, 4.
It certainly isn't a grade V. I solo'd it some years ago and I have never solo'd grade V. IV on a bad day, III on a good. Anything else and it just isn't in condition.
