In reply to bombshell: Did you do just the two pitches in the vid then ab off?

In reply to TobyA: Yeah you can join onto tower ridge, but the second pitch is the crux pitch, with decent ab tat.

That's what I'd do if I did it again. There are about 3/4 long pitches of grade I/II ground above that land you quite high on Tower Ridge with quite a lot of down-climbing to do.

In reply to Jamie B: didnt realize their was tht much easy going above, glad we abbed off early then!

Yep, been there, done that (after doing a very very icy original route). Managed to loose two ropes in a somewhat epic descent, although marginally less epic than for our friends who were coming up the route behind us slowly. Our abandoned ropes helped them considerably though!
