Very thin conditions made this route pretty spicy! Super day out though. Here's to a proper winter!

Yes we finished it. James led the first pitch, I led the second. Both easy enough but poorly protected really. It was quite thin, but okay. Had already started to melt by the afternoon, glad we got an early start!

Lead it today in blustery wet snowy conditions, Superb and really not too worrying i thought. Good effort lads. It was falling down as we left :(

Pretty sure that would get VI in Scotland.

Not a great ice meister myself, but I would tend to agree with Jamie. Would need to stand underneath it to judge more accurately though.
Seems that South of the Border is also having a descent winter.
