does anyone know/have any idea what condition this move is in?

I dont want to drive up just to find this isn't in condition and i have no brain so cant use a guidebook for alternatives.

In reply to smithaldo: I think you'll fund the 6th move is the left leg on the red circle, followed by left hand on the green circle.

In reply to smithaldo: It's slightly brittle on the surface, but 4.5mm below the brittle crust, it's hard ice, so you will probably have to swing the axe about 2, possible 3 times to get a decent placement of about 1 inch depth.

Hope this helps.

It kind of depends on what axes you are using this season.

THIS DRY TOOLING OUTRAGE ON CLASSIC SUMMER LINES MUST STOP NOW!

If you dare go near it with those pointy things I will shove them where it hurts!

Winter climbing in the UK is only permitted on 500m high ice sheets.

Honestly, people these days! Bet he's got curved axes and front points as well, the rascal!
