Looking back from the chockstone, in the teeth of a major storm. All spindrift going upwards! Exceedingly memorable day.

Hey Tim. Now that was a fantastic day. I'll never forget sitting in the pub afterwards with those huge grins on our faces - what a great feeling!

sensational shot. If you know the route, this is definitely a 5. Well done on clearly a true winter ascent, a rare bag. Could you do the door jam direct with the help of snow?
